Peter Hoogeboom is a graduate of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, in Amsterdam, the city where he still lives and works. The first jewellery artist to apply contemporary techniques to porcelain, he has participated in a number of international exhibitions and many of his works can be found in museum and private collections.
We have been using clay to adorn ourselves since the dawn of humanity. In his work, Peter strives to reintroduce the concept of clay as body ornament. He uses it in its fired state, which, in contemporary design, is generally reserved for the production of ceramic vessels. Instead of working with large ceramic beads – the way clay has traditionally been used, since 1995, in each new collection Peter has discovered techniques for creating supple and wearable ceramics.
