Who would have thought of using porcelian bowls to make music. Of course I knew that a bowl had a very nice ring when tapped, something which I love about porcelain. But Roos Van de Velde takes it to a higher level. She plays on the bowls she makes. I visited her yesterday (with a group of fellow ceramists) and she gave a little performance, the quality is not great (you can hear us oh-ing and ah-ing in the background ;-), but I’d like to share it wih you anyway. The music on her website is also composed, made and sung by her.
An impression of the visit, her house and her work I will post later on the Dutch Handmade website.
