The fascination about the making process of an ancient copper vessel in the museum of Hallstatt in Austria led to a new series of work. Therefore the title of the series is HALLSTATTPIECES. The strong and vital pots are hand built from fragments of grogged clay, which I shape with my hands. The seams are visible and I allow a lot of movement.
The vigorous colourful painting is generated by beautiful illustrations in a book about birds. The Latin name of the bird becomes the title of a HALLSTATTPIECE.
