… at the drawing board

Creating Stippling art takes a lot of time. After the design sketch, the drawing is built up dot by dot. I place about 200 dots per minute. A dot of 0.1 mm up to 0.4 mm. A drawing often contains more than a million dots. Depending on the size, a drawing can take up to 2 months to finish. 

Transferring the drawing onto ceramic is the next step. This is precise manual work. I use handmade ceramics or I look for suitable existing ceramic with a beautiful shape or appearance. The drawing and the ceramics thus form a coherent whole.

At this moment I work on the theme Heart of Gold. I believe that everybody has one. Man, woman, young, old, black or white. Even those we refer to as criminal or evil have a heart of gold deep inside. If you seek and find this within yourself, hold it and follow it where it leads you. That makes you happy and immediately makes the world a nice place to live in.
In my work I try to inspire everyone to look for his or her golden heart. Because … you have it too!
