A masterful dilemma. Design in porcelain
For over 40 years now Piet Stockmans (born 1940) has cherished the medium of porcelain in all its facets: he designs industrially produced dishware, he manufactures artisanal objects and he creates artistic installations.
In his work, shape and content interlace. Here, repetition plays an important role. The repetitiveness of the industrial process translates into an artistic means of expression in his work.
Owing to his original, multi-facetted and cutting-edge way of working with porcelain, Stockmans has a unique place in the Flemish design world, and he is more than deserving of the exhibition.
