Mirjam Smeekes-Ottenhoff is a Dutch sculptor, specialized in bronze sculptures.
Sculpting wax is my favorite material to work with.
It gives me the opportunity to work either fast/ “sketching” or let it sit for a while to go back to it and make changes.
The wax allows me to sculpt in a very basic way: mostly with my bare hands, allowing for me to clearly demonstrate the emotion I have in mind. Often you can see that in my final results.
It gives my sculptures their unique expression and purity.
“I just love to see when people are touched by the simplicity and expression of my work.”
With rough “pencilstrokes” in wax, I reveal their expression and emotion. Hereby a feeling of the story behind them is created.
Are unique characters and communicate primarily with body language .
Through capturing their unique posture and expressions, I try to show their character.
There is often a special occasion or wish when it comes to bronze sculptures.
Please contact to find out about the posibilities and hopefully we can start a creatieve process together. You’ll love it!
