Ghislaine van Tongeren

Artist Ghislaine van TongerenI have always drawn and painted. When I was young my profession was pottery painter of Delfts Bleu and Polychrome. Later I did some academic studies of making sculptures and ceramics hand-building. These are the basics for my further development.

My works of art are all unique and stoneware baked. Handbuild, figurative and colorful. Humans and sometimes animals that are giving you a smile.

In July 2014 I was allowed to be a member of the NVK = Dutch Professional Department Ceramics. In 2015 I won the prize of the audience of the contest ‘ Clay in Motion’ from Holland and Belgium with my “oldtimer” of clay ‘on the move. For me the reason to continue my artworks.
