(Foreword) 'In sculpture, clay is often seen as the medium between the concept and the realisation of an object in another - hard - material.
The sculptor / ceramist Harald Jegodzienski unites in his objects the properties of clay as a subservient and independent medium. He recognises the 'softness' of the tone, which invites the reflective imprint of spontaneous gestures, but in order to realize his concept he needs precisely defined relations of tense contours.
In fired clay without finishing, Jegodzienski expresses the force that has its origin in the continuity of movement and in the accumulation of continuously flowing materials. The element water is just as important to him as the element earth; it draws parallels between water in clay and water, which is found in large quantities in living organisms.
The Department of Applied Arts and Design of the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen limits itself to the subject of the 20th century ceramics collection, whose starting point is mainly functional.
With plastics like these, however, where the basic material clay has such an emphatic function, it seemed to us justified to show Jegodzienski's work to the Dutch public as an exception to the rule. When it comes to ceramic sculptures, the essence of the material is seldom discussed in such a clear and controlled manner.' Wim Crouwel, Director
