(1946-2017) Dirk Romijn
Dirk Romijn passed away. An artist we worked together with so pleasantly for so many years. He created his sculptures from geometric shapes combined with flowers. The vase and flower are a unity. While designing, the flower formed the basis for him, particularly the characteristic properties such as the strength and length of the stem, as well as the colour and shape of the flower itself. He looked for a special glaze for each vase, and compiled the glaze himself. He sometimes gave the illusion of evoking a different material: he has produced a bottle with a dark green glaze resembling glass for example, and his tulip cage resembles cast iron. Only by touching them can you be certain they are ceramics.
