(1965, The Netherlands) Mo Cornelisse has worked as a full-time ceramist since 2012. She seeks the challenge in simplicity, and material contradictions. Her work consists of unique pieces often in porcelain combined with gold. She uses modern techniques in creating her objects but always with love for traditional craftsmanship. In her work she looks for boundaries in form and material. The works are threedimensional and are distinguished by shape and simplicity. The wall objects are reminiscent of reﬂections of light. She takes geometric forms and arranges them into various big and small waves. Her white porcelain dolls take the innocuous child’s toy and adds—sometimes morbid, sometimes grotesque—details. Her artist statement is “to show there is more to ceramics than we used to see.
