Jeanine Eek Keizer’s Color Tableware
The life of a potter and that of a collector come together and mix with reservations about excessive consumerism in the colored crockery by Jeanine Eek Keizer. By applying a simple trick, it turned out that existing pottery could be glazed anew. By using uniform shade variations of colours, it was possible to put together complete sets of tableware from a collection of odds and ends of crockery. At first sight it appears to be a single, beautifully coloured tableware set, but a second look lets you discover the variety and wealth in designs and decorations shining through. A near constant flow of ‘new’ old tableware has to be supplied, making snooping about in charity shops, jumble sales and auctions no longer an objectionable addiction.
