About me




After 15 year working as a medial analyst I followed my passion and retrained  me as a ceramist. After finishing the technical ceramist education The Crabeth College in Gouda in 1995 and the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in the year 2000, I started in 2002 my Ceramic Atelier in Nederwetten. Since then I make my own work, functional as abstract organic. And I give my passion to others, both children as adults in my lessons. As well in art centre as in my own studio.





Paula Groote-Versteegen makes a variety of simple abstract shapes in organic forms. They are all slightly different in form and colour.  Each form has its own mood and cosiness. Together they form a group for security and safety. “Taking part of a similar-minded group where every individual can express him-/herself is a recurring theme in my work.”
