Artist’s Statement

Born in Belgium to a family of artists, Hilde DeBruyne possesses the innate ability to transform clay into timeless works of art. She studied Art History and Archeology at the University of Ghent. It became her passion.

 Her rather abstract clay works reflect nature and the   authenticity of the cycle of life. Fragments of the   feminine form emerge inspired by the simple and   organic features of rock formations, pebbles, and   weathered wood.

 Her artwork has been in public and private collections   and international exhibits. 
 She also designs artwork to be executed in metal or   bronze. 
 
  Hilde lives with her family in rural Iowa, USA
