  • About the Artist

“I explore, in clay, the possibilities of what seems impossible. Throwing archetypical forms on the wheel. Yet, the plasticity of the material invites me to go beyond the thrown wall. To meet my sensual involvement with the material I test and explore its physical boundaries. After altering a series of forms, I assemble them to create an organic abstraction as an open invitation to feel the constraint tension, to discover the vivacity and the altered touch. These ceramic objects have a dynamic sensuality that pushes the malleability of the ceramic medium to the extreme.”

Anne Marie Laureys thinks of her ceramics as metaphors for feelings. She starts the process by throwing a classic, symmetrical pot. While the clay is still soft and wet, she pulls, folds, pinches and punctures it. The tension of the clay underneath her fingers dictates the way the folds take shape. Her pieces have a spontaneous, unplanned quality but in reality, she takes her time to find the shape of a vessel, remoulding and refolding the clay over and over again until it speaks in her unique voice. No two works are ever the same. Her ceramics are renowned for their sense of excitement, freshness and tactility.

Anne Marie studied at the Higher Institute of Arts St Lucas, Ghent. Her work can be found in private collections internationally and are included in the official collections of the Province of Hainaut, Belgium, The Taipei county Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan, The Arts and Crafts Museum of Shanghai, China, the Keramikmuseum, Westerwald, Germany and most recently, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Florida, USA.

Anne Marie Laureys lives and works in Belgium.
