Dutch glass and ceramic designer.
Stevens is a Dutch ceramist, glass maker, designer
and teacher based in the historical town of Gorinchem. He has designed
glass and porcelain works for Rosenthal and other companies while
also making one-of-a-kind pieces, either monochrome or embellished
with abstract graphic designs. His thick-walled porcelain vessels
are brightly glazed, and sometimes finished with luster.
work can be divided into two parts. One is focussed on only material
& form and mostly monochrome (Yellow Porcelain Bowl, above).
The other works deal with form & material with a very strong
focus on the surface graphics (Vanitas Pot, top left). They are
sometimes anecdotal but mostly abstract. (Red & Gold Bowl, left).
