Wietske Van Leeuwen Biography

'The strength of van Leeuwen’s work lies in the unity that she achieves among the various historicising elements, as well as a balanced ‘historical’ use of colour. The glazes evoke sensations from the matt surfaces of shells to the smooth juiciness of lemons. Like a seventeenth-century painter, she combines different elements to maximise the contrast in colour and texture. All this makes her work impossible to place - each piece is a melancholy treasure.'
