Cecil Kemperink is born in The Netherlands (Almelo, 1963)
As a curious and sensitive child/teenager she follows many art and dance classes. After one year at the fashion academy, she switches to visual arts, where the love to explore different materials is encouraged. After her graduation she starts with wheel throwing and there begins a deep understanding and eagerness to ‘talk’  with clay. Her sculptures are connections between her varied passions: textile, clay, dance, fashion and sculpture. Kemperink works intuitively. The sculpture grows in her hands. The manual process of connecting the circles gives rise to an attentive, and labor-intensive process. Her sculptures have many appearances. They are more than 3 dimensional;  you can also change the form, hear the sound and experience the feeling when you touch the work.
Kemperink’s professional practice has taken her to exhibitions, performances and catwalk shows. She has exhibited in South Korea (ROK) -  Mino Japan (J) - Vallauris (F) - and many other museums and galleries. Her work can be found in the collections of: Korea Ceramic Foundation (KOCEF collection), CODA museum (NL), Ceramics museum Mondovi (I), The Foundation for Contemporary Ceramic Arts Kecskemét (HU) and private collections.

Ceramics in motion
‘Motion is a key part of the expressiveness of my sculptures. The movements show the importance of each circle of the object. Every ring is essential and influences the other: because they are all connected. Moving the sculptures leads to an ongoing change in shape, space, sound and feeling. My creations are constructed from rings of clay, which symbolize connection.
Working  in an instinctive way with the earthly clay, I seek for balance in shape, colour, material and rhythm. My ceramic sculptures are my communication with you.
Listen, see, feel and experience what happens when the sculptures move and enjoy the moment’.
