Albert Vaesen (B)

Cupper

Beating, folding, bending and welding are my techniques.The infernal noise is for me accompaniment music to the birth of some piece of art


Talent from Kauliller soil (Northern Belgian Limburg)

As a youngster, he started cutting wood in his spare time. With hammer and chisel he created life in a wooden plank or beam. Later, he began to experiment with materials such as iron, aluminium and copper.

Now he has become a self-made metal artist. Welding different pieces together to form an expressive object is one of his favourite pastimes. Red copper is his favourite material.
Apart from his art pieces, he also works on order. Thus, copper work has become a full-time occupation.

Ann Geirnaerdt (B)

Lost-wax casting technique, bronze

Bronze figures that show strength but also vulnerability


Burkina Faso:
Ann Geirnaerdt attributes her present style of working with bronze to a three year stay in Burkina Faso (West Africa), where she was able to experiment full-time with the lost-wax casting technique using bronze.

Ann Geirnaerdt:
Each of my sculptures tells its own story, starting from personal experiences and emotions that I want to give the place they deserve. In this way, my works show, in a very rewarding way, strength but also vulnerability.

Themes:
Ann Geirnaerdt deals through her works with the themes of man who is constantly "searching", who needs closeness, security, but at the same time wants to maintain his own strength. The man who longs for a certain harmony and wants to live life to the full, sometimes vulnerable, sometimes strong, always looking for his cosy nest, which he also prefers to share with others.

Material:
What makes her work special is the inspiration coming from natural materials. In the construction of her works she regularly uses natural materials such as bark, branches, plants, and leaves, which inspire her enormously due to their movement and structure. These materials leave an imprint which she gratefully takes up and shapes.

Anouk de Groot (B)

Cheerfully coloured ceramics, patinated bronze. - Theme: comical animal stories

Narrative sculptures in ceramics and bronze, The power of humor and imagination


Working in clay and bronze, Anouk de Groot is a visual storyteller with lots and lots of imagination and humor. She depicts these stories with the help of animals and human figures.

As she loves to play with contrasts, her subject matters range from the very serious and profound, to highly comical, fantastical - always poetic, and always masterly crafted and with a most detailed finish.

Anouk de Groot creates hares and princesses, frogs and snails, elephants and ghosts, strange and wonderful creatures, happy to meet and greet you.

Glass

Glass objects showing the duality of the material and techniques, expressing the duality of Anusch Bayens life


Anusch Bayens:
A passion for beads led me, over 10 years ago, into working with glass and exploring its many different techniques: hot and cold.
Glass is a versatile medium that holds infinite possibilities. It offers transparence and opacity, plasticity and hardness, softness and roughness… It allows beauty and emotions to pass through it … it calls for touching and feeling …
It is that duality in glass that I like to explore as it is a reflection of my roots: both African and European, of what I show and hold inside, of my homes in Belgium and Italy …

Ceramic

Capturing real life moment in terracotta, resins or bronze


Since 2012, Bénédicte Maréchal has been sculpting in the "Art et Ose" studio and makes her sculptures mainly with clay, but also with resin and bronze. She is a multidisciplinary artist - she also writes travel stories and composes and plays music - who likes to capture moments in three dimensions, such as her sculptures with adventurous children, naiads at the edge of the water. Sometimes she takes a step back into the past to represent a point of view, e.g. her heads, empty like masks.

Bronze, Ceramic

Combines cold, dead and petrified materials to create surprisingly living, warm and mobile artworks


While working the CLAY I convey my mood and feelings in my works.

The baking process gives an indelible patina to the CERAMICS.
The IRON is bend into moving figures.
BRONZE acquires an eternal form of existence after melting.
The dead WOOD comes back to life.
The cold STONE suddenly radiates a kind of warmth.

A combination of these raw materials presents a challenge and leads to surprising results

Christine Ceccato (B)

Ceramic

My sculptures are resonances of being, links between matter and spirit, symbolic or animal


Education:
After a short teaching career, in only two years, Christine Ceccato obtained with the congratulations of the jury her 'arts du feu' diploma in Limoges. An inter-school exchange programme sent her to the Farnham Academy of Art in the United Kingdom and also at Sars Poterie in the French Ardennes.

Creative approach:
Christine Ceccato works with stoneware and porcelain to create monumental or smaller sculptures. She also creates everyday objects using a personal angle. Her creative approach is inspired by the sacred, where inner and outer beauty and emotions are reflected in each other as in a dance of life.
Her everyday objects radiate a serene energy, an enthusiasm for life that translates into sobriety or joyful exuberance.

Themes:
Her sculptures have roots in the Egyptian myths, folk stories and even fairy tales. Christine Ceccato shows a personal interpretation of these histories. She is therefore well placed to exhibit in "The Enchanted Garden 2021" with the theme "Fabulous Creatures".
Her technique services beauty, using shimmering glazes or contrasting rough and delicate pottery.

Diane & Denis Susswein (RhinoVerre) (B)

Ceramic, Glass, Glass fusing

Glass Fusing and firing glass beads using torches (RhinoVerre)


Diane & Denis Susswein:
They received an introduction to torch glass by Septy Bechou, fusing and thermoforming by Véronique Duterne.
Glass is a material that breathes lightness. Translucent sculptures come to life in its environment, in a relationship of mutual enrichment with the surrounding nature. The luminosity of the landscape, the sun rays, the rhythms of the days and the seasons interact with the colours of the artwork.
Starting with the creation of a sculpture, the artist is obliged to imagine the work in its environment.

Fusing:
Fusing consists of cutting, assembling and superimposing coloured glass plates. Afterwards the composed piece is put in the kiln for 'fusion', it often creates an unexpected result.
The fusing pieces exhibited in 'The Enchanted Garden 2021' were created to bring light and colour in the green spaces. The artworks can also be hung on walls or even better before windows to create coloured light in the rooms.

RhinoVerre:
Torch beads, - a meticulous, high temperature technique developed in Murano - Venezia, - is used to create the small rhinoceros. The bead is first formed around a mandrel. Points, stitches, stems are added, and when the elongated bead is finished, there is still the delicate work of attaching the legs, head, eyes, ears, horns and nostrils. The last addition will be the tail.
Each rhino is unique in form, technique, colour. The result sparkles in the sun.
The 1300 'RhinoVerres' of Denis Susswein form a colourful and playful family.

Edith Stoel (B)

Bronze, Glass in collaboration with Peter Olijve

Search for a balance between the transparency and massiveness of materials with being 'carried'


Edith Stoel;
My artworks combine glass, bronze and stone. I play with the form of expression of each material and I seek to balance the transparency and massiveness of materials and being 'carried'.
But glass can also have a massive appearance and bronze can look light and transparent. The search for an expression of these emotional experiences and the use of the different materials fascinate me endlessly.

Peter Olijve:
In recent years, Edith Stoel works together with her partner Peter Olijve. Their ideas complement each other. For Edith, the idea starts with a form. Peter, with his technical knowledge and skill, examines whether it is technically feasible and how to achieve it. Sometimes they adapt the idea, but mostly the sculptures balance on the edge of what is technically feasible in order to give expression to Edith's original idea without making compromises.

Subject;
The bronze sculptures of Edith Stoel are mostly animals. The perfect anatomical form is not what she strives for. She is looking for what she considers to be the prototype of the animal species: the strength, the resignation, the introspection, ... During the creative process, the character of the animal often unfolds, which she then reinforces. The form of expression is therefore not smooth or unambiguous, her animals are fragments of thoughts about their being.

Els & Tom Bleijenberg (B)

Ceramic. Theme: Birds

Ceramics with a Smile. A cheerful view of the world


Els and Tom Bleijenberg:
Els and Tom Bleijenberg present their humorous view on the 'world' in cheerful, hand-designed ceramics. Giving the birds a nice facial expression, the correct pose and subsequent colouring is always a challenge.
Every piece of work is unique, gets its own matching name and is signed by them.

Work method:
After the animal figures of Els and Tom Bleijenberg have been dried, they are baked several times in an electric, computer-controlled power oven.
The first Biscuit or Bisque firing is carried out at 980°C. This makes the clay strong enough for the application of decorations and/or glazes.
It's followed by a second stoneware firing around 1245°C. It melts the glazes onto the clay.
Sometimes a third firing follows to add glazes or extra decorations.

Glaze and pigments:
Els and Tom Bleijenberg use (under)glazes and pigments (metal oxides) to give the creations the desired colour and appearance. They are applied with a brush, sponge or airbrush gun (in several layers). Sometimes Els and Tom Bleijenberg choose to leave parts uncoloured, in other words to preserve the original clay structure.
Finally, a clear glossy glaze is applied to the creation in a spray cabin. After drying, they are baked at 1245°C.

Else Ringnalda (B)

Depicts the homo ludens in a world where people treat each other and nature with respect.


Else Ringnalda gets her inspiration from the question how the ideal world looks like. A world in which people treat each other and nature with respect. Else Ringnalda makes sculptures of Homo Ludens. She sees her sculptures as extras in a utopia. These Homo Ludens are people who discover and develop their talents. They offer space and admire each other's differences. Some sculptures swing, others float on water, moving under the influence of wind and current. This gives the impression of creating a theatre on water where a different scene can be seen each time. To emphasise the equality between people, Ringnalda makes androgynous sculptures. Their form is created after manipulating reality by, for example, lengthening limbs or broadening shoulders and leaving out details. The figures are introverted without suggestion of movement or unequivocal expression. They seem absorbed in their play. (Text from the website of Else Ringnalda)

Elya Yalonetski (B)

Combining the Russian school of ceramics with Baroque and Renaissance elements in her sculptures and figurines


Elya Yalonetski:
She's an award-winning Berlin-based artist who has been successfully working with ceramics for 20 years, combining her original traditional training from the Russian school of ceramics with Baroque and Renaissance elements in her sculptures and figurines. She has changed several countries of residence, but has always followed her own recognizable style.

Vision:
According to Elya Yalonetski, ceramics is a very mystical art medium. Being very fragile, it can still outlast ages and eras. With mostly unknown authors, each ceramic piece retains the personal aura of its creator and entire cultures are named after specific ceramic styles. With over 1000 objects sold to collectors from all over the world, Elya Yalonetski hopes that a few thousand years later someone will be able to "read" the emotions from her artwork, just as she can feel them when she admires the work of ancient craftsmen in the archaeological museum.

Round female figures reflecting peace and tranquility


Friedy Evers-Duijsters:
She's inspired by the nature of women. Her sculptures radiate calm, tranquility and peace. She emphasises the round forms of woman, which she depicts in a stylised way, in search of the core of live, the soul of man.

South America:
Twenty years long, Friedy Evers-Duijsters lived outside the Netherlands, three and a half of which in Mexico. That time has had a lasting influence on her work. The Indian women on the markets fascinated her. In their traditional costumes, they sat quietly with their merchandise. They did not seem to be bothered by the hurried world around them.

Vision:
Friedy Evers-Duijsters tries to let her sculptures radiate peace, warmth and contentment. Something we so badly need nowadays. So, slowing down, away from the trendy society and a bit back to the simple ‘being’ and daring to enjoy that.

Glass, metal and polyester - theme: Organic, abstract, monumental work

Abstract, organic and colourful monumental structures in combinations of glass, metal and polyester


Design:
The work of Hendrike Huijsmans is characterised by its open character, bright colours and clear, sleek but flowing lines. These radiate movement and liveliness.

Abstract but organic:
. Hendrike Huijsmans likes to make abstract sculptures. Free organic structures that seem to grow and find their way fascinate her immensely.
The works are almost always colourful , monumental and have a positive aura.

Combining materials:
. Hendrike Huijsmans likes to work with steel, glass and polyester and combinations thereof. The possibilities of shape and colour of these materials are almost unlimited. They are therefore very suitable for creating the free flowing sculptures that she wishes to show.

Henk Baggerman (B)

Stone

Abstract shapes inspired by nature in natural stone


Materials:
Henk Baggerman prefers to sculpt in natural stone, such as soapstone, alabaster, marble, serpentine and selenite. He makes the wooden and stone pedestals himself. The shape and color of the rough stone mainly determines the image he wants to create.

Method:
Sometimes Henk Baggerman starts with a fully-fledged prototype of an image that he has in mind using concrete or plaster block. If that works out as desired, he will look for a suitable stone in which to sculpt the sculpture.

Artists/Images/hermien buytendijk_image_geld moet stromen klaar_ceramic.jpg

Hermien Buytendijk (B)

Ceramic


Hermien Buytendijk:
. The sculptures are often made from an evolving sketch but change during the creation of the sculpture. It is also possible that they are modelled after a word or a title. Also the naming is often the result of a game of question and answer with the sculpture. In this way, many crazy word combinations have arisen and the resulting sculptures are always different and unique.

Stripes of clays are used to create a hollow sculpture (stoneware or porcelain) They are kneaded together and dented. Often, Hermien Buytendijk is working simultaneously with several sculptures in different stages of development.
They are painted with colour slips and scratched in, then they are baked in the oven at 900 degrees. Then they are rubbed with dyes from metal powders and glazed and fired at a minimum of 1200 degrees. This is often followed by a firing at 800 degrees to burn off some gold.

Hermien Buytendijk for Gallery 'T':
Hermien artfully puts life into perspective with ceramic sculptures that subtly move between dream and reality.

Her sculptures often do something that is not quite possible, they seem to just escape reality but give a sharp impression of it. With humour and double meanings, she creates creatures that everyone will recognise with a smile. Human and animal figures merge with musical instruments and objects to original unique pieces and each object gets its own name.

The subjects are created from a fantasy taken from life, all different and surprising.
The sculptures are usually placed on wooden or stone pedestals which are decorated to match.
The work has the colours of the earth with here and there a touch of gold and graphic elements.

For me, modelling is like singing in clay


Hieke Meppelink:
I usually start with an idea, a concept that is often inspired by classical vocal music. While singing, I see images, I am inspired, I am touched. I try to make visible what first seemed invisible.
Transformation is the key word in my creative process.
Singing is the transformation of feelings into fleeting sounds, and in essence I experience sculpturing as a similar process, but now using solid, raw materials such as clay and bronze.

A passionated artist devoted to glass. Three-dimensional sculptures with organic forms filled with mouth-blown flat glass.


Jan Leenknegt is devoted to glass.

For more than 45 years, he has been a passionate glass artist creating three-dimensional glass sculptures. He combines an organic design with mouth-blown flat glass.

Jan Leenknegt describes his work as follows: "Everything I make is of the greatest obviousness, this is what I do, all my life. My creativity is my life, my universe. I make my own world and I still want to create more.

His work is built around a number of themes: the elements, the universe, the microcosm, in short, life on and around this planet in all its forms.

A Poetic Alternative Universe


Tone Aanderaa:
Bits and pieces, old remnants, junk and beautiful scrap are found and welded together, haphazardly careless or carefully planned.
A new world evolves, new machines are invented, and then inhabited.

Fantastical, playful, filled with humour, and then there is this almost indescribable something, a sadness, a melancholy, certainly human.

All of which makes it Poetry.
And, as with most poetic artist, titles are important.

Jan Verschueren plays with the senses, and he plays with words in a most endearing way!

Jean-Luc Absil (B)

Bronze, Resin

Reaching for the unattainable emotion


Jean-Luc Absil creates his sculptures in clay and wax and the casts are in bronze and resin.

Jean-Luc Absil has an eye for details. He looks constantly for the elegance, the emotion that the female body evokes by its restraint or by its provocation.
The natural sensuality of the woman he depicts leads the viewer to take a serene look at her nudity.

By magnifying, even deifying the woman, he creates the 'Femme Sacré'.
Jean-Luc Absil tries to immortalise the overall image of the Female Goddess.

Joël Sadaune (B)

Metal, Scrap

Giving new life to recycled materials and objects to reveal landscapes and scenes of life


Galeries Barissardo & Au 45 (Isabelle and Hervé Venet)(adapted and extended):
Trained as an architect and with experience as an exhibition scenographer, Joël Sadaune expresses himself through pictorial works featuring virtual and semi-abstract spaces, borrowed and transformed from our daily life, such as urban or virtual networks, or industrial sites.
With spare parts, he invents real machinery so necessary in our daily life.

From painting to sculpture, Joël Sadaune creates universes with an industrial atmosphere, against a background of decorations rich in details: markings, symbols, messages, traces, tears ... he likes to use the vocabulary linked to packaging: arrows, numbers, barcodes, stencil inscriptions ... which are all representations to allow him to limit his works and leave the abstract, creative universe.

His creation sounds like an invitation to explore, dissect, decipher and travel to the borders of a fantastic, modern world.
With Joël Sadaune, nothing is arbitrarily created! The originality of his artwork is in fact the result of research work, the artist likes to observe, describe and understand the world he then reinterprets, expresses in his artworks.

Korpus Quartet (B)

Four young french horn players

Korpus Quartet unites four young horn players from four different conservatories, coming from various countries, speaking different languages. Korpus Quartet plays a repertoire as diverse as the members of the quartet. Saturday 21 august 2021 the play in the garden between 15:00 and 17:00.


Jonathan van der Beek:
He's around twenty, lives in Vlaams Brabant and is studying under Luc Bergé at the Royal Convervatorium in Brussels. He's on the shortlist of the 'Young Belgian Talent 2021'.
End July 2021 he was selected to be a member of the Theresia Orchestra, Salzburgh, Austria, for the next 3 years.

Tanguy Aerts:
Our second member is Tanguy Aerts: Tanguy actually started playing the saxophone in the windband of Sint-Jozef in Leopoldsburg. He followed the footsteps of his grand ànd great grandpa, who both used to play in this band for a long time. After some years of playing the saxophone (at the age of 14) he discovered that he made the wrong choice and he changed to the horn. He learned this instrument from his teacher Rik Vercruysse, who turned him into a horn player very quickly! After his studies in 'de!kunsthumaniora' in Antwerp he continued studying in the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. Tanguy already got the chance to play in orchestras like Prima La Musica, Frascati Symphonic,... and he got the chance to play with and get masterclasses from some world class conductors and teachers like Ronald Boër, René Pagen, Olivier Darbellay and John Logan. Besides playing the horn, Tanguy is also conducting the 'Orbis Youth Orchestra'

Loïc Cerfontaine:
He is born in a very musical family and is the youngest member of Korpus Quartet! He studies at IMEP in Namur, where he already began in 2015 in the Young Talent Class. Loïc combines his horn studies (with professor Nico De Marchi) with piano studies (professor Roberto Giordano).

Urmin Nes Majstorovic:
He was born in Belgrade, Serbia. He began his musical studies at the age of 5, first with violin and piano and than with horn. After finishing high school for all three instruments, he decides to specialise in horn. He entered the 'Academy of Arts' in Novi Sad. Two years later, he left Serbia and continued his studies in Brussels. At the moment, he is a 2nd year student in Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, in the class of Jean-Pierre Dassonville.

Lebuïn D'Haese (B)

Bronze and Ceramics

Only one subject: the human being in bronze or ceramics


Vision:
Lebuïn communicates through his work with the audience, which gets an insight into his ideas and opinion. Being an artist is not free obligation for him. Art for art's sake is not his concern. He is a committed artist with only one subject: the human being. (Gui Kestens)

Luc Clerinx:
Lebuïn D’Haese watches ‘la comédie humaine” slightly ironically, deeply moved he watches ‘humanity and its woes’. What he sees and how he sees these things is brought to life in his statues.
Always thinking visually, acting visually. Frugal forms, the omission of excessive details, and the suppression of subjective emotions steer the dramatic poignancy in these statues in the right direction.

Frank De Vos:

Loes Knoben (B)

Bronze

Bronze 'branches' show women (?) full of elegance, movement and expression. The lines of the artwork express the emotion found in faces


The bronze women (?) sculptures of Loes Knoben show expression, movement and tension.

Loes Knoben is always looking for wood, branches and bark, weathered by wind and weather. In them she searches for strength, rhythm and balance. It starts a discovery voyage to new art works.
The used natural materials leave their mark on her sculptures. The wooden twigs become arms and legs.

The art of Loes Knoben reflects her view on life, her talent to observe people, fathom their feelings and translate them into beautiful expressive bronzes.

Luc Leroy (B)

Stone

Mobiles from recuperated stone pieces (Stone Upcycling)


With stones moving in the wind Luc Leroy invites you on a timeless journey through bluestone. They also expose the contrasts between the geometry, the originality and the imperfection of the material.
The mobiles introduce you into the world of Luc Leroy's passion for sculpture, which balance on the border of art and design using rough materials.

Luc Leroy shows with the mobiles that stone is in respectful fusion with nature.

Luk Luts (B)

Stone - Theme: petrified messages & encapsulated women

Free the petrified messages or statues of women from their old stone shells


With an innate awareness of the beauty of nature, Luk Luts "gets to the bottom" of the various types of stone.

He uses as well Mergel-sandstone, as Diestianian iron-sandstone, French stones, Belgian and Irish bluestone, the beautiful but delicate Noir de Mazy, the unique Italian marble 'Bianco Statuario' and the colourful Zimbabwean Opaal and Springstone.

To clarify the fossilised message from the "in print" in the stone mass or to liberate female statues from their centuries-old stone husk is his obsession.

Luk Luts evolved from a school-teacher to a stone-teacher. Not only because he understands and feels the stone better and better, but also because he shows us in his personal style what he sees in a stone. Once you have felt his work, you will always recognise it.

Marc Hadermann (B)

Glass


During - and after a career as a graphic designer and product developer, Marc Hadermann devoted himself tot the visual arts. The last decade, he mainly worked as a glass artist.
He is inspired by nature and images in the world around him. Wandering around, he collects images, looking like an astonished child with strange perceptions.
Fascinated by “light” and “transparancy” he is giving the spectator an opportunity to observe the world through his eyes.
His art , paintings or glass installations, are always pure, without rules, honest, straight and with no compromises.

Poetic voyage in glass


The art works of Marie Biesmans are like sentinels and glimpses caught in glass along the way in what she describes as her ‘Travel through glass in a world in constant motion’.
And she wants us to pay heed and protect our blue planet, so luminous and filled with poetry.

Marjan Smit (B)

A sandcasting glass form, a cloud of borosilicate glass, filled with colourful fantasy


Glass artist Marjan Smit uses her burners to make colourful fantasy creatures in which you can sometimes recognise squid, seahorses and plankton. Sometimes they look like nothing at all, they are the result of her unbridled fantasy.

There are countless glass techniques with which you can realise everything you can imagine. But then you really have to take the time to learn the craft and master all the skills.

Marjan Smit starts a sculpture using sand casting; simply explained, pouring liquid glass at 1240 degrees Celsius into a mould made of foundry sand. It needs two steps, in between she places the already made fantasies of glass, copper or sand into the coagulating glass. The result is playful, with unexpected colours and sturdy lines.
It's followed by creating with a burner a cloud of borosilicate glass on the solid cast. And there Marjan lets her fantasy runs free: flowers, frog eggs, seagulls, vines, squids, ... a crown full of delicate details, but it forms a unity with the cast object, which serves as the basis.

Marjan Smit makes use of the facilities of 'Het Glazen Huis' in Lommel, centre for modern Flemish glass art.

Martha Veldthuis (B)

Combining masculine and feminine characteristics


Martha Veldthuis:

Technics:
Martha Veldthuis creates the ceramic human figures by hand from coloured clay, - clay with oxides. They are fired in an electric kiln at approximately 1100oC. Thereafter, the sculptures hardly need any further processing.

Sculptures that are combined with other materials such as bronze or wood, are assembled with mortise and tenon joints or glue and coloured.
Some of her works are casted in bronze.

Themes:
It is not the contrast between the male and female, but the combination of these qualities in every human being that intrigues Martha Veldthuis.

Visual artwork is essentially communication between artists and viewers.
Martha Veldthuis is much more fascinated by the emotional and behavioural aspects of communication than the passing of information or content.
Martha Veldthuis tries to express in her art the transfer of feelings such as aggression, joy, shyness, fear, loneliness, arrogance, etc. to the viewer.

Bronze, Ceramic

Self-confident, elegant and individualistic women in bronze and ceramics in a classical representation


Nico Out (Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant)(Adapted):
Mieke Oldenburg works in clay and bronze.
Serene introvert busts of women, bathing figures, women as sentinels, standing figures and reliefs. The skin dry and yet touchable. Her colours are sometimes greyish and sometimes intense.

Mieke Oldenburg could be classified as contemporary Classicism. However she adapts the classic influences in her own way, and demonstrates self-consciousness and individuality.br> It is like Mieke Oldenburg wants to share the best and the most beautiful of mankind with her audience: the condition of the body, mind and soul into a timeless whole are fused.

Patrick Van Tilborgh (B)

Glass is his ultimate source of inspiration. The creations are sometimes rough and simple in form, sometimes stylistic, but often colourful and playful with a typical touch of character


For a quarter of a century Patrick Van Tilborgh is already infected by the glass microbe. After a technical training, he began to experiment with glass. He followed a seven-year glass course at the IKA (Instituut voor Kunst en Ambachten) in Mechelen under the direction of Koen Vanderstukken and Miloslava Svobodova. He has his own glass studio and a mobile glass studio to realise his own creations and organise glass demonstrations, events and workshops. Patrick has an inner urge to work with glass in an uninhibited way. Glass intrigues him because it results always in such a complex adventure. It always provides new experimental and artistic challenges. Glass is his ultimate source of inspiration to create new objects every time. The passion of this glass artist is clearly reflected in his works of art. Sometimes they are rough and simple in form, sometimes rather stylistic, but often also colourful and playful with a typical touch of character, typical for Patrick Van Tilborgh.

Petra Verhees (B)

glass fusing combined with cupper, oxides and raw materials

'glass fusing' combined with raw materials such as wood, stone, metal


Petra Verhees (adapted):
I am a nature lover and have spent months travelling through Europe on foot and by bicycle. The impressions of nature and landscapes I have gained on the way remain my sources of inspiration.

The choice to work with glass is rather accidental, I do not call myself a glass artist.
For a while I worked with water as a theme and was captivated by its reflection, refraction and transparency. However, water is difficult to shape. When I studied a piece of broken glass, I saw the same transparency, refraction and reflection and even the same colours. From then on I started working with the (clear) float glass.
I think recycling is important and I prefer to use used glass from greenhouses. Creating a whole new work from waste gives me great satisfaction. The colours and materials, which I add to the glass, are all of natural origin: Copper, gold, silver, sand and oxides.

Petra Verhees creates her works using the fusing technique. She combines this with raw materials such as wood, stone and metal.

Roland Menten (B)

Composite

Snails, frogs, flowers, mushrooms are endlessly combined, but always surprising, humorous and perfectly executed


The Snail

The artistic creations of Roland Menten show always a humorous note that is often in contradiction or gives an unexpected view on our stressed and perfectionist society. He builds up an entire oeuvre on and around snails, frogs, leaves, mushrooms, ... In short, nature. In his work, he gives snails a place of honour.

The beauty of Roland Menten's works is that they grow along with nature.

On the one hand, through the use of polished and rough surfaces, the lichens become spectators and at the same time they take a part in the story told by the artwork.

On the other hand, through the alternating use of colours, the works conquer their place in nature, which softens their dominance by incorporating the sculpture into the life of the vegetation.

The works of art by Roland Menten feel at home both in a modern design and in a classical interior, in an austere French garden as well as in natural vegetation, but they always elicit a smile :-)

Toni Kanwa Adikusumah (B)

Bronze, Metal, Wood. Theme: Ritual and spiritual art

Creating passages, opening the mind, resulting in spiritual and ritual objects in wood and bronze


Luc Schreiden (adapted):
The originality of the works of Toni Kanwa Adikusumah lies in the alliance between the primitive arts and contemporary art, between the depth of the East and the creative freedom of the West. The synthesis he achieves sublimates dualities.

Influences:
Toni Kanwa Adikusumah was born in Java, Indonesia. The first part of his life he was immersed in the heart of several indigenous tribes where culture and ritual arts were still a matter of life and a necessity for humans. His knowledge of ancestral techniques and his spiritual roots are exceptional. As a graduate of the Bandung Institute of Technology, he was for more than fifteen years an expert in tribal art for Sotheby's and Christie's in Jakarta and Bali.

Recently:
Since the 2000s, Toni Kanwa Adikusumah has been travelling the world, notably allowing himself to be touched by the influences of the European art scene.
The artist presents at ‘The Enchanted Garden’ a series of wooden sculptures and bronze creations revealing the flow of vital energy resulting from his unusual path and the duality between East and West.

Véronique Roland (B)

Glass, Metal, Stone

Dynamically nourished by curves, constantly oscillating between sensuality and sensitivity, between the emotion of animals and subtle humanity


Véronique Roland's world is a perpetual abundance of inventiveness and diverse materials that she chooses, which she combines and shapes according to her imagination. Her creations are all the result of an impulse, a dynamic nourished by curves, constantly oscillating between sensuality and sensitivity, between animal emotion and subtle humanity.
The curves move away, come closer, intertwine, branch out as our lives do. Clay or steel, glass or wood, pewter or resin, everything supports her inspiration. She masters the multiple techniques used by the craftsman. Her spirit is therefore entirely at the service of the theme she wants to create, not on the technicality of the artwotk.

Recently, the monumental has attracted her for its technical difficulty, of course, but above all for the artistic challenge of its integration 'in situ'. Her monumental sculptures want to be light, airy and carrying a deliberately positive message. We find her signature in the sensual curves energized by straight lines that give them strength and stability.

Véronique Roland sees herself as the first beneficiary of her sculptures.

Will Schropp (B)

The sculpture has to be as if it was the only possibility for this piece of wood


Will Schropp:
Lines, groves, the ribbing and the character of the wood play a big part in my sculptures. Wood has a lot of possibilities, but even more impossibilities, between them I create my sculptures.

'Life' and the eternal dream of 'Flying' are subjects of my sculptures. When I carve I am conscious of the nature, I see my work as a synthesis between design and nature. I finish my sculptures in such a way that people are prompted to touch them. Wood shows history and trees played a role in mythology. If possible I use those elements.
