Is it sculpture, it it photography, is it drawing, is it painting , kinetic or is it……..? I really can not determine exactly what it is , but i like it very much. Ossip is one of the artists i collect and admire. I will write a blog on him in a few months after i have visited his studio again, but in the meantime you can have an idea of his work when you look at the pictures with this blog and please do not hesitate to put you comments underneath it.
This week another of the Jan Snoeck unique ceramic plates will be auctioned at Catawiki. What makes this plate very special is that the nose is a special protruding ceramic part of the plate. The auction can be found here
It has been some time now that i am auctioning on Catawiki handpainted plates and bowls by Jan Snoeck. These items were made some 30 years ago and are all signed on the back. I mention this auction, because Jan Snoeck will have a special exhibition at the Museum Jan van der Togt / Amstelveen opening on the 1st of March ( https://www.jvdtogt.nl/verwacht-jan-snoeck-oskar-lens/). This will be a great occasion to see the works by Jan Snoeck who has become one of the most important European ceramic artists. Snoeck’s his works are rarely offered but the plate on Catawiki / https://veiling.catawiki.nl/kavels/10479085-jan-snoeck-unicum-schaal. is a rare and typical Snoeck ceramic plate and deserves to become part of a great collection. Take a look for yourself and if you are interested in the books by Jan Snoeck, visit www.ftn-books.com. ( only a few left). For the other available plates inquire.
If you ask a citizen of THE HAGUE who is Jan Snoeck?…. They probably do not know who he is, but ask if they know about the ceramic statues, they do know them. These statues are spread all over THE HAGUE and trademark works by this artist. Snoeck born in 1927 is one of the great masters who grew up and stayed in THE HAGUE all of his life and has parctically known all of the artists from the POSTHOORN group. Ceramics are what he is known for although he also made some graphic works and paintings. I know Snoeck from his earliest days because at one time a bought a lithograph at Arta in the early 70’s.
And now i am selling the UNICA he has made some 30 years ago
A few months ago i was contacted by a collector who wanted to sell her collection of unique plates and i agreed to help. So these weeks special unique plates by Snoeck are sold through Catawiki and the one that is for sale now can be found here.
