MASTERCLASS Ceramics at Culture Center Strombeek, B 7-6-2012 at 20hrs

AnneMarie Laureys explores for HEAT, the possibilities of what seems impossible. During this Masterclass she illustrates her approach with a focus on the creation of her recent ceramics.

She throws archetypical forms on the wheel. Yet, the plasticity of the material invites her to go beyond the thrown wall. To meet her sensual involvement with the material she tests and explores its physical boundaries.After altering a series of forms she assembles them to create an organic abstraction as an open invitation to feel the constraint tension, to discover the vivacity and the altered touch.These ceramic objects have a dynamic sensuality that pushes the malleability of the ceramic medium and the fluidity of the glazes to the extreme.
