Ode to nature

Homo Ludens Homo Ludens

September 5 to October 25, 2020

The fourth edition of the theme exhibition "Ode to Nature." This exhibition is attended by 47 ceramists from the Netherlands and Belgium, who have all made work around this theme.

Two human figures of mine are standing on a plinth with the text: 'The landscape of my youth is becoming emptier, everything turns out to be more fragile than expected.' My work is no 8 in the catalog and is on the left on the corner, at the first intersection of the main path, within the green.

The Ceramics Route passes through part of the sprawling arboretum. The work is set up between, in and under trees, in high and low grass, along the heather garden and near or in the water. There is small, intimate work on display, but also larger installations.

The National Tree Museum / Von Gimborn Arboretum (27 hectares) houses the largest collection of exotic trees in the Netherlands. It is a wonderful location for outdoor ceramics. There is small, intimate work on display, but also large installations. Download the flyer for more information.

A catalog with route map is available from the ceramist for € 4.00. Admission is € 6.50, children up to 15 years old and donors of the Arboretum are free.
