Willy Van BUSSEL

Country : Netherlands

Willy van Bussel (selftrained) was born in the Netherlands in 1951 and has been making ceramics for almost 40 years. He runs his studio in Heeze. Besides ceramic shows in a lot of countries his work is in several private collections. He exhibited in Germany, Belgium, France, Austria, UK, Tsjech, India, China, Korea and the Netherlands.

He is a professional member of the Dutch Ceramics Association.


His cylinders and bowls are eggshell thin inviting the passage of light through their delicate structure. Their hard crispness belies their acquired fragility and invites the observer to question, almost disbelieve, the qualities of the material from which they are made; soft smooth pure porcelain carefully hand crafted on the potters wheel, passed through the fingers of the maker and rendered permanent with the heat of the kiln.These translucent objects capture and hold a beautiful luminescence that appears to be emanating from the very porcelain from which they are crafted.
