Frank Steyaert was born at Dendermonde, in Belgium, in 1953. His work is linked to the Nouvelle Céramique international movement which emerged in the 1970s, characterised in particular by a realistic sculptural approach. A multidisciplinary artist with a vast technical background, he is a ceramicist and a creator of jewels, prints, furniture, and monumental terracotta pieces integrated in architectural projects. These less known aspects came under the spotlight for the first time with the various versions of the ceramic shipwrecks for which he has become famous. Ludovic Recchia, the Artistic Director of the Keramis Centre, has brought together several authors, in particular Frédéric Bodet, Stéphanie Le Follic-Hadida, Marc Dubois, and Carine Verleye, who throw light on the eclectic works of this astonishing artist. This monograph is published in collaboration with Keramis, which is holding a major retrospective dedicated to the artist. Keramis, established on the site of the old Boch pottery at La Louvière, is a space for creation and the arts, specifically dedicated to the ceramic medium.
