Liliane Demeester

Liliane makes beautiful ceramic forms similar in appearance to Georgia O'Keeffe’s paintings. Liliane’s ceramic forms are voluptuous, graceful and full of sensuality. She says the forms develop automatically from intuition as if guided by the clay. Liliane deliberately colors her work and creates a soft, matte texture that produces synesthesia in the viewer – it looks like it feels like skin – her work fills the viewer with the desire to touch the surface.

Artist Statement

Clay...

Mother Earth...

Fascinated by the plasticity of the clay.

Perfectly manageable one moment, resisting the next .

Always driven to turn the shape into a moving whole.

Exploring boundaries, searching for perfect emotion in the form.

A movement of its own arises from a sometimes simple pot shape.

The clay seems to find its own way

until he finds a balance and a dancing

whole.

The finish gives the work a soft feel

appearance that makes you want to

touch it .

Color is very important here.
