6 March 2021 - 4 April 2021 "This is not a Teapot" solo at Terra Delft
Ever since she became acquainted with porcelain, Wilma wanted to go to the Chinese center of porcelain, Jingdezhen, in order to work with this material in its historical context. In 2019 this became possible through a work stay in Sanbao, Jingdezhen, organized by Gallery Terra Delft.
After her stay in Jingdezhen, a workshop ‘making Chinese teapots’ was given at Toonbeeld in Castricum, NL, by Li Zhen of Jingdezhen and Simone Haak. Wilma was drawn to the sculptural qualities of the teapot as object, as well as to the different ways of affixing the various parts. Through this focus, Bosland’s subject changed from organic and physical to minimalist and abstract. The work has become more constructive and architectonic.
