First Light, a ceramic collaboration created from the heart by Annemieke Boots in The Netherlands. Visually delicate in pale oatmeal cream, with small flecks that shimmer as light moves across them, evoking a feeling of stillness as you watch, lost in the moment. This plate is hand thrown on the wheel from stoneware, a solid, grounding and tactile material.
Simplicity, I strive not for perfection, but for purity, a connection to the essence of the clay. My being, soul and feelings are within the ceramics I make - Annemieke
Care: Dishwasher and microwave safe, however, it is recommended that you hand wash with care
Marks and differences in the glaze are a natural part of the unpredictable process of hand throwing and glazing. All this turns every product into something which is completely unique.
Self-taught ceramic artist Annemieke's creations come from the heart, they occur from within. 'Firstly I create for myself but when others appreciate my work my happiness is complete. My being, my soul, my feelings are within the ceramics I make. The purpose of my ceramics is to increase the pleasure and taste of drinking and eating for others.
Simplicity is the keyword. I do not strive to perfection but to purity, to the essence of the clay and myself.
I feel very at home in the ‘slow movement’, conscious living and an appreciation for details; enjoying the small things in daily life. Ceramics is in a way a slow paced art. You can’t rush clay, it takes time and attention to shape it, dry it, fire it, glaze it, fire it some more and then finish it'.
