Tinne Debruijne - contemporary ceramist

Tinne Debruijne

About

The passion for the clay is the motive behind the choice of Tinne to work as a professional ceramist. Already at the age of five she was fascinated by the ability of this material that could be manipulated, in such a way that ones artistic expression could be concretised.

With a background as an interior architect and later as a web designer, design has always been like a second nature but the urge to realise her own handmade creations brought Tinne to the art academy of Leuven (Belgium), where she finally found what she had been looking for ... 7 years and many workshops later, Tinne manages to realize her projects and touches people with ceramics, where individuality and originality stand central.
