Mieke Everaet

From an early age, Mieke was intrigued by bowls, the shape which protects, collect and stores content. The bowl is one of the oldest and most evident utensils. Her bowls refer only to that user function. Impassioned by the material, her work constantly searches for cohesion of shapes, structure, light and colour.

The bowl shapes are made up of ribbons of kaolin clay. Rhythmic repetitions and growth patterns are clearly recognizable in the light-permeable designs. The bowls are strong, yet they balance on a small and inconspicuous foot, and so appear to float, giving them a sense of mysticism.
