Welcome to Dreams of Clay


Clay dreams of becoming tea-ware… Who am I do deny her? And if she can help me give shape to my dreams, then so much the better!

Immerse yourself in my dreams, a little more with every sip.

Here you will drink tea and awaken.

You will feel the weight of a warm cup in your hands and embrace life.

May you be drawn into the quizical gaze of an ancient teasage captured in clay and see yourself reflected…

By the way… some of my work can now be seen at this traveling exhibition:

Weekly tea sessions

From Friday 31 jan. onward I will host free tea ceremonies in my tea dome in Goudswaard. The ceremonies will range from formal gongfu cha to ritual bowl tea and everything in between. We will sometimes conduct gongfu cha experiments.

In general, we will drink tea in silence for about an hour and afterwards we can discuss the experience.

The ceremony will start around 11:30 every friday. Contact me or click the button below if you want to join! Space is sadly limited to 6 guests.

Join us for tea

(…En maak je geen zorgen. We spreken ook gewoon nederlands. Ik ben er alleen nog niet aan toegekomen mijn site tweetalig te maken…)

Sculpture

Recent work

At the moment I mostly make tea inspired sculptures, and an occasional study or commission. Have a look at my recent work:

Older work

For your information and entertainment, here is a gallery of some of my older work. Some of these are studies or unfinished but I hope you enjoy them regardless…
