ART JEWELLERY DESIGN
Peter Hoogeboom lives and works in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He studied at the jewellery department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (Amsterdam) and graduated in 1992. Peter works in the area where art, design and crafts overlap. Since 1995 he has been using ceramics / porcelain in his jewellery.
Apart from being used as a material in art, in design ceramics seems
to be reserved for its utilitarian function as a vessel. Peter wants to return to its function as body adornment, which ceramics has had since prehistory (e.g. terracotta beads), in an innovative way. Using the method of slip casting, he can replicate the many hollow, relatively strong and lightweight elements to build his objects and wearable pieces with.
