Artist Reinier Lagendijk plays among other things with the capacity to deformation of nature. In our factory, we fire his latest project, tree trunks. To fire such big sculptures is a very scrupulous process. This project is something you wouldn't associate with a Delfts ceramic factory immediately but it shows the legion of possibilities.
His exhibition, Quand la nature s'éveille, will take place from 5th of March until 2nd of April in Galerie Ramakers in Den Haag.
