Tweeny van Mierlo
I have been a ceramicist for the past 30 years. A lot of that time I taught youngsters between the age of 16 and 18. My specialist subject is ceramics but I also taught, Fine Art, Design Development, Life Drawing, small scale Glass, and Metals.
I enjoy the beauty of a well made object. I like the idea that people will touch my work and get pleasure out of it. I like to make things that are useful and that bring people together. My life has been spent getting to know different norms, cultures and traditions. The idea of feeding people or being fed by others intrigues me. We learn so much about our world through sharing food. My work celebrates how this medium can bring communities together.
