Niek Hoogland

Born: 1953, The Netherlands, Limburg, Tegelen

Ceramicist. Hoogland was born in Tegelen (derived from the Latin word for roof tile) an area with a rich ceramic tradition. Hoogland describes himself as a village potter and works within the regional character. He makes contemporary ceramics, including individual pieces, commemorative dishes and utilitarian ware. He uses earthenware from Tegelen, applies coloured engobes with brushes and slip trailers after drying, and finally uses sgraffito techniques to reveal the underlying clay.
