Barbara Nanning

Barbara Nanning’s oeuvre is characterized by consummate craftsmanship in both the glassblower’s and the ceramicist’s art, by innovative materials and a unique repertoire of forms and shapes. This artist extraordinaire unites tradition and innovation, Dutch simplicity and Oriental opulence, structure and artistic freedom, as well as reason and emotions. Her inexhaustible source of inspiration is nature in all its manifestations, whether organic or inorganic, and in particular water, wind and clouds. She always works from the circle, which she sees as an archetype. “The center of the circle is a resting point, from there, the movement emanates… That’s what I do: capturing the essence of movement and growth in my work.”
