SCULPTOR Magda Van Holsbeeck
Artist in permanent collection.
Working with clay was one of the first techniques that humans learned 20,000 years ago.
Clay is caused by erosion: rain, wind, sun and water cause rocks to break into stones, pebbles,… and finally to become the very small particles that make up clay.
In the pottery oven, soft, pliable clay becomes a hard, permanent, undeformable material. It does not rust, it does not decay … Is destined for eternity, but just as fragile and fragile.
I enjoy kneading clay, creating with it…an idea, a fantasy becomes stone. And therefore visible and tangible.
