Professional info

 

Maria ten Kortenaar lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

She was trained as a silver- and goldsmith at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and earned her degree as master in 1985 from goldsmith and sculptor Jaap de Vries. Since 1995 she started working with clay because it gives her more possibilities to work with colour. Since 2005 she only works with porcelain. The colours in her porcelain objects are through and through, made with a special inlay technique : Nerikomi. Her work is all manually built, this makes every example a unique piece of art.

 

Since 1997 she exhibits in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Great Brittain, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, South-Korea, China and the USA.

Maria ten Kortenaar is a member of the AIC-IAC

You're on the outside,
Looking inside.
What do you see?
Reflections and emotions.
That's probably me.
