Hein Severijns (1936), éminence grise of the (cristal)glaze, makes vases with soft, round shapes. Their simplicity and elegance meet his need for refined aesthetics. He develops the glazes for his objects, consciously opting for matte or eggshell crystal glazes with small, generally round crystals in earthy colours, in harmony with the introvertshape of his vases. Various tints of blue, green, ochre, sometimes combined with pink and beige. The very special colour effects are formed by applying thin layers of glazes on top of each other.
His vases are created using a mixture of French, German and Australian porcelain mass, which is fired at approximately 1300ºC. After many years of chemical research into crystal glazes, he has successfully achieved an extremely high degree of perfection.
