Clay and glazes│ 2017
The Idea of my ‘handgrips’ started with my wrist-surgery, now 2 years ago. The doctors removed a cyst in my wrist and as a result I couldn’t easily move my wrist for one month.
I took clay and started to knead with my left hand, but that wasn’t so easy in the beginning.
Then I used the clay to do exercises with my right hand ‘like a grip’. I was inspired by the accidental forms and later on I used these forms to continue my clay research and glaze tests.
