Hand built in mixed clay with glass eyes

Titled ‘Lysbeth’ after Lysbeth Reyniers, wife of Dutch painter Frans Hal, this original ceramic piece echoes the influence of 17th Century life – this is apparent due to the ruff worn around her neck. Instead of creating a detailed traditional neck collar, Coaten created a minimalist disk to allude to life at the time all while keeping the idol raw and vulnerable.
