Henk Wolvers - The Golden White 2009–2022
|Author||Jan van Opheusden|
Henk Wolvers is known for his deep attachment to porcelain. As an artist who produces contemporary ceramics and has worked in Japan, he is drawn to its essence and places emphasis on its simplicity and inherent beauty. Both the material itself and the pieces he makes with it reflect the way he sees the world: subdued, balanced, careful, modest, and with consideration for others. The result must be logical, free, flowing, and uncomplicated. The period from 2009 to 2022 is covered in this illuminating overview of Wolvers and his work, initiated by historian Jan van Oudheusden. The book also offers a glimpse into his home and studio, a repurposed school building from the 1950s.
