SMELL THE ROSES at Atelier Lachaert & d’Hanis, Tielrode, Belgium 2-5/06/2016

During the unveiling of Atelier Lachaert & d’Hanis (from the 2nd till the 5th of June), Sofie Lachaert and Luc d’Hanis want to surprise their audience with a festive opening and with a short but explosive exhibition ‘Smell the Roses’

A story about ‘dwelling on’, about contemplation, reflection, consideration, about appealing to all the senses and stirring the imagination. But most of all a story about time; when we ‘stop and smell the roses’, it means we have to slow down, take our time and learn to appreciate what we so often pass by, unnoticed. 

An ode to the senses, … or simply as an ode to flowers and their recipient, the vase; a seemingly trivial object. Vases and flowers often immortalized on canvas as the fruit of the boundless imagination of the painter, or as a symbol of transience, the passing of time, a memento mori…

Subscribe now to be invited to the festive opening on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of June

CFILE online ****review on COLLECT 2015

Collect 2015, London (at the Saatchi Gallery, May 8 – 11) was relentlessly conservative providing the usual array of tabletop finely crafted ceramics. Technique overshadowed adventure and it looked much like last year. For CFile the Anne Marie Laureys work was the standout, form and emotion knotted












CFile Foundation is a non-profit, donor-supported organization that offers a global online community for ceramic creatives working in art, design, architecture, and technology. The Foundation’s mission is to foster dialogue about ceramics across the many disciplines of the visual arts and to support higher education about ceramics in art schools and universities. The heart of this mission is a free online campus and knowledge center anchored by The Weekly, a free news magazine edited by the renowned scholar and writer, Garth Clark.  The Weekly, which is read in over 125 countries, presents critical reviews, commentaries, and multimedia news coverage about cutting-edge ceramics to a global audience.
