public_access_description
Wouter Dam's ceramic forms have an architectonic clarity, their surfaces attaining a degree of precision and evenness that seems unexpected in a hand-made object. These qualities are nevertheless off-set by a sensuality present both in the curvature of the forms and in the velvety texture of their surfaces. This texture is achieved by rubbing dry pigment into the surface of the form before firing.
