At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked Dutch artist Janice Jill to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.
What do you call your series of artwork?
– I call my series 'CHHED candleholders'. A series that made me further investigate my current glaze colors and to finally combine two colors in one art piece. Until now I have only made uni-colored candleholders and by forcing myself to combine two colors, a total different vibe occurs.
What technique have you used?
– The candleholders are made from clay and glazed, both spray-painted and brushed.
What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?
– I find inspiration in interior photography and the use of light, color, and materials. Automatically I start imagining my ideas in these interiors and I wonder how they could surprise, cheer up but also blend right in.
Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?
– My ceramic journey started in New Delhi, India where I lived for one year in 2019 and got the chance to fully develop my love for clay and color.
How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?
– Never Grow Up
What we love about JANICE JILL:
Janice draws inspiration from the world of interior photography, which is evident in how her pieces seamlessly merge with various spaces. Her commitment to the mantra "Never Grow Up" infuses a playful and youthful spirit into her art.
