Roest-Chapman, Truus

The focus of my work is Raku. This is a Japanese firing technique that creates lustrous and smoked effects. My work consists of hand-built sculptures and thrown pots, as well as works that combine these two elements.

My work encompasses opposites, control and spontaneity, carefully designed work surrendered to and transformed by fire and smoke. These works reflect my interest in the juxtaposition between a carefully executed design and the often unpredictable and exciting surprises that occur during the Raku process. I aspire to create works that are distinctive in design and recognizable as a cohesive body of work.

I graduated in 1982 from Concordia University in Montreal with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (with distinction), Major in Studio Art, specialization in Ceramics. I continued my studies with various courses and workshops at Centre de céramique Bonsecours (Montreal), as well as at conferences in Canada and the USA.
