People: Iris Tonies & Arnout Krediet
If you feel the need to dwell more on milestones in your life. If you want to create a place for rest and reflection, close by, in your own home. If you are looking for a way to give emotions more space in your daily life. If you want to honor or commemorate important people in your vicinity. If you are looking for a good reason to relax and be creative in a wonderful place in Spain.
In a week full of creativity and reflection, you will work with Iris to design a ceramic work of art for in your home. This can be a wall jewel or a home altar, but also another work that can be designed during the week.
In my art I put a lot of personal experiences. The importance of rituals in processing our emotions is big; they provide guidance to help us lead happier lives. In recent years I have regularly helped people by packaging their personal stories into symbols and shapes and incorporating them into my art. This process is very dear to me and forms the basis of this retreat.
During the week there is extensive attention to work together in my studio, to talk about the themes you want to dedicate your artwork to and to research symbols and shapes that make your artwork personal. In addition, we organize morning meditations and we enjoy delicious lunches and dinners.
The end result of the week is a design for a work of art, which I further develop and finish in the weeks after the retreat. Then I will send the glazed work to you.
