Eric Don / The Netherlands
Eric Don is respectful of and attentive to the primal message uttered by the mute stone, wood, metal. They touch him, he recognizes their grace and extracts their initial anonymous meaning. He knows their history of violence and aggression through his experience with the past of the shipyards. It is this extraction of their soul, this implication of a vigorous creative process which makes the artist stand apart. He imbues them with a new life.
There is no true metamorphosis of the object in the sense that the anonymous object had already been instilled with an inner life long before, perhaps at the end of the 20th century, or perhaps at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, or perhaps even in more distant ages, just waiting to be given a second or a seventh life during the course of the creative process. The artist lets the material sing with the words and music which belong to it.

Milou Ceramics / The Netherlands
Milou has a passion for the texture of porcelain, the way it evolves throughout the process has always intrigued her. The raw material constantly change throughout the process - from powder to liquid, from wet to dry. The challenge here is to ensure each step is done perfectly to create the refined result she is looking for.
Every step is completed by hand, which is a huge challenge and very time consuming. In our Western world everything is easily available, we often don't know how something is made. By sharing the process with full transparency she hopes each piece will be looked at differently.
Her minimal aesthetic is a consciously chosen, both to show the character of the materials but also ensure longevity in the design.
