Harry Kooy has been making wire creations for about ten years. He started by letting his hands go to work on some wire and ended up with a zeppelin. And he has let his hands lead him to new possibilities ever since. Early in 2022, Harry retired from his career as an auto mechanic so that he could concentrate on his creative efforts.

Sandra Zuidema

@ St. Jacobs Mennonite Church

The patterns and skeletal structures found both in nature and architecture are the inspiration that drive Sandra’s work. Her medium is clay – wedged, thrown, carved and pierced – just to the point it can stand before cracking. As she pushes the structural limits of clay, she strives to make a substance as hard as rock and sharp as glass feel weightless, as light as a leaf skeleton, as fluid as water, as fleeting as a flame.
