Mario Niesingh - Ceramics

"We all are in transit from one place to another and it is in between these two states that we tell our story." - Carlo Fantin
“I am a self-taught ceramicist and like to use experimentation as fundamental and essential to my art practice. Over the past four years I have developed several unique techniques which have come from the failures and successes of this process. My influences include Australian fauna and flora to which I have been a committed conservationist my entire adult life, following my immigration from Holland as a child. Nature’s secrets are incredibly inspiring and bountiful. When used as inspiration for a 3D medium the results are rich and varied. I find porcelain clay offers a versatility of detail and transparency through which I can communicate. Porcelain evolves from an interactive process of metamorphic change. The medium itself is intimate in nature as the artist creates a sequence of change. Particles of sand and earth create a relationship between potter and clay that are fragments of time. I hope to see you at my demonstration.”
