Leon Strous: Ceramic artist, Amsterdam

In a basement in Amsterdam’s Spiegelkwartier I discovered the amazing ceramic artist Leon Strous. His private gallery and studio are home to an array of interesting characters. Leon works in fine clay to create sculptures that tread a fine line between reality and abstraction but always with humour.

When I visited Leon he was just putting the finishing touches to one of his quirky characters. Seeing the artist at work on these intricate pieces was definitely a highlight of my time in Amsterdam.
