Georges Sybesma

Georges was born in the Netherlands and grew up in St Germain-en-Laye. He was to turn his first pieces in the workshop belonging to his mother, also a ceramist. In 1983, while living north of Limoges, he became a “large-scale” potter in contact with Claude Varlan. He plays with clay, enamel overlays and fire. His skill at the wheel was a treat for amateurs and professionals alike. After moving to La Borne in 2000, he continued to explore surfaces by combing and scarification. These surfaces reveal a landscape as seen from the sky, external or internal ploughed landscapes. With pottery in his bones, he remains faithful to being a potter. The pot is a pretext, a source of discovery and everything is done against music that plays in Georges’ work.
