Wied and Diederik Heyning
Heyning W/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.
Diederik concentrates on throwing and building paper thin porcelain objects like lamps and vessels, Wied gives an answer to his work by applying fine, delicate decorations in white relief, soluble salt colours and black engobe.
In their latest work, the basket series, the light is broken by the open spaces and the shadows cast are part of the work, their delicate expression in contrast to the hardness of the material.
