Introduction: In the later 90’s I also tried my hand in another area: that of ceramics. My wish was to actually paint on a different surface and the three-dimensionality of the ceramic vases and plates already was something new and different by itself, which I had to deal with. It was an interesting and challenging experiment. The subjects and compositions came predominantly from my prints or paintings at the time, so what happened was that those paintings and prints appeared on the ceramic surface like mirror images, like reflections. In a sense, my ceramics are also true reflections of that time as a whole, when many of my early paintings were themselves reflections of the ideas and the bright and bold colours of my monoprints. This is a presentation of a number of the ceramic vases, plates and several mosaics made during the period 1998 - 1999.
