Kunst bij Galerie de Pieper

Friday 21 June 2024

At Galerie de Pieper in Opperdoes you will find art in glass and ceramics. Including the glassware of Marjan Smit. This year Marjan celebrates her 40th anniversary as a visual artist. The first 20 years mainly with graphics, the last 20 years the emphasis has increasingly been on glass.

She combines several glass techniques: pouring liquid glass into sand molds and working on the burner to create very fine details, both in and on the work.

The contrast between these techniques makes Marjan Smit’s glass objects very lively, imaginative, graceful and surprising.

This glassware is combined with curio glassware in bright colors.

Ceramics by Onno Theelen.

Onno makes ceramic sculptures. He uses humor and references to nature to create scenarios, a piece of work is a story. Onno draws his inspiration from the Baroque.
