Tine Deweerdtwas born in Brugge in 1970 and studied ceramics at the art schools of Gent and Antwerpen. She is a teacher of ceramics and a very promising young Belgian talent. Tine Deweerdt makes pot forms. The material is used to its full potential and accentuated. The rougher forms are referring to the earth, to the clay of the Flemish Polders. She combines this with the use of paper, porcelain… The result is timeless and can both refer to the past and to nature. Deweerdt has remained faithful to the pot form, but the elaboration has become more craggy over the years, without losing its poetry. The basic forms are gradually and carefully replaced by a texture that has boosted the aesthetics of injury and weatheredness in a lyrical and playful way. One could injure oneself on them, even though the objects themselves are just as fragile.
For Puls Tine Deweerdt is planning a number of works in a gradation of colours from black to white and a series in white porcelain, glazed and unglazed.
