“So much happens in a day, a year, a lifetime. During the hours of darkness

I try to unravel memories, dreams and thoughts”- Gennie de Lange

 

Gennie de Lange has been developing a unique glazing technique for over 40 years. Working on unglazed terracotta she paints

many layers of glazes. The colours are matt pastels before being fired in a kiln for three days. After firing, the tones and colours are

completely transformed. Some glazes are transparent, some opaque, all are difficult to apply evenly and some react unfavourably

when they are near each other. Gennie has discovered by endlessly experimenting how to handle them to their greatest advantage.

 

There is a very painterly feel to the finished works despite the ceramic methods which have been used. The glaze effects are rich,

luminous and complex, with a jewel-like quality. They can be placed in a bright light and are impervious to water. The paintings

can even be hung outside the house and in the bathroom! This technique is now very rare because suitable earthenware tiles and

glazes are almost unobtainable.
