Corien Ridderikhoff

Corien Ridderikhoff (Amsterdam, 1953) is a ceramist since 1977. Her work consists primarily of various types of vases, tulip towers, urns, jars and cups. These are generally cast or built out of porcelain slabs and then decorated with geometric motifs. For the decoration Corien most often uses a liquid-wax batik technique. For the colored areas of the design each piece is dipped in a rich indigo-blue glaze. After firing (1260 degrees C) the decorative design shows an appealing contrast between matte white and glossy deep blue. This technique also develops a tactile relief effect between the thickly glazed and the unglazed surfaces that is pleasing to the touch. Corien draws her inspiration for this work from Asian ceramic, architectural and textile patterns.
