Dutch artist Brigitte Bouquet works in ceramics in combination with natural materials such as wood, linen, leather, paper, wool and hessian from her home in Andes, NY. Her work, she says is “grounded in a fascination for the anatomy of livings things, the essential visual elements that make up the whole. I am drawn to nature’s variegated patchwork and pattern - its textures, colors, structures and compositions. I see them as the origins of all that has been imagined and designed. My sculptures are made up of many individual pieces, forming intricate surfaces through rhythm, repetition and multiple glaze firing. The trance-line process involved in creating the works often take months. I enjoy getting lost in a deconstructed reality of everyday life”.
