Name: Ans Vink

Medium:Ceramics

I live with my family in the Netherlands and have been working as a ceramicist for several years now. Since September 2017 I have been working as a full-time artist. I have spent the last 25 years working with self hardening clays in manufacturing. About 12 years ago I came in contact with “ real” ceramics as an art form and I was hooked! I finally found the material in which I could express my artistic feelings.

I am largely self-taught by reading books and just by experimenting diferent techniques.

In 2008 I enrolled in a three year ceramic course. I am still learning by following all kind of classes and workshops to improve my skills. During that time I have learned to throw on the wheel as well. My main interest however is in making sculptures.

I love to make realistic art , often with a smile. Sometimes I add materials like rusty iron. I use all kind of clay, from earthenware or stoneware. In my work I often use slips I have made myself using oxides or pigments. I make my own glazes.

In the last few years I sell my work on ceramic- and artmarkets in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. I  exhibit my work in galleries and also work on commissions.
