Wied & Diederik Heyning
HeyningW/D Studio stands for the combined work of Wied and Diederik Heyning. Their complementary skills in different disciplines give their pieces in porcelain their unique character. We are fascinated by different means of expression in porcelain. Diederik concentrates on throwing and building paper thin porcelain translucent objects like lamps and vessels. Wied gives an answer to his work by applying fine, delicate decorations in relief, using soluble salt colours. In their latest work, the basket series, the light is broken by the open spaces and the shadows cast are part of the work. The maker’s aim is to produce objects that will give lasting pleasure to their owners.
