Ceramist Dien Jorien Geertsma has been working as a professional artist since 1977. In her work she likes to venture into the intermediate area from two to three dimensional. “This makes my work linear and increasingly graphic. I often make couples that react to each other and in which I incorporate little jokes. The vases are rather flat, the surfaces of two different works merge into each other, so it appears two-dimensional while it is three-dimensional. "Together, the works often form a still life." Open forms are a characteristic of my work, "Geertsma says. A second important factor in her work are boats. She is more concerned with the expression of what she sees and experiences in them than with a realistic representation, taken from life. to have."
