Enriching the collection
Ceramics Centre Tiendschuur aspires to follow new developments in ceramic art and to include a reflection of them in the collection. Objects from the past are also regularly added to enrich the collection. Here are some recent examples.
Marja Hooft (NL)
Work by her was acquired because of her prominent role in Dutch ceramics. Her work is in all the collections of the country's major art museums.
Anita Manshanden (NL)
She has proven to be consistent in the style and quality of her work. It is technically soundly made and unique in its kind. Her work is now in several museum collections.
Mieke Everaet (B)
Work by her was acquired as she has already exhibited several times at the Tiendschuur. She is praised for her unique and laborious technique of building particle objects with porcelain.
Jacques Bongaerts (NL)
A Bearded Man jug by Jac. Bongaerts was recently acquired. Made of red clay with white, yellow and black clay imposed, finished with transparent glaze. This object is an addition to the Tegel ceramics collection. Bongaerts made only two such jugs.
Marja Kennis (NL)
The work "Casting Life" by Marja Kennis was added to the collection because she manages to convince the world of 'modern art-lovers' with her ceramic work. Thanks in part to her, ceramics are rising in museums of modern art. Her inventive working method is unique. She has already received two grants to work at the EKWC. This object was made there during the first period. This glaze too that she can never recreate herself. It beautifully depicts the colour and texture of soft leaves from nature. It is a large monumental piece that has previously been shown at the Haags Gemeentemuseum and the Princessehof in Leeuwarden.
