Dutch artist Sonia Landweer studied at the Amsterdam School of Industrial Design. In 1965 she moved to Ireland to set up a ceramic studio at the Kilkenny Design Workshop. Landweer's innovative practice in jewellery, body sculpture, bronze and ceramics has evolved from a close relationship with the natural world. Landweer’s ceramic works have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Ireland and Europe since the 1960s, including retrospectives at Visual, Carlow; the National Craft Gallery, Kilkenny and Designyard, Dublin. Her work is represented in public and private collections worldwide.
