When I was four, people asked me what job I wanted to have if I was a grown-up; my answer was an artist. This answer hasn't changed ever since.
About six years ago I discovered ceramics, I directly knew this was what I wanted to do. I have mostly concentrated on throwing on the potter's wheel. I like this very much because you can make a lot of different forms and objects. Also, it's possible to make the pot perfectly round and right, which I like because I'm slightly perfectionistic.
At the moment I'm mainly focussed on sharing my work online. I like to make short videos of the making process and I share these on Instagram and TikTok. I'm also making longer instruction videos, which you can find on YouTube. I love the filming and editing that goes into these videos, combined with making my pottery while recording.
Moreover, my name is Calder van Andel and I'm 20 years old. I live in the Netherland, in a small village called Babyloniënbroek. I finished high school two years ago and I'm taking some gap years at the moment, to focus on making ceramics and instruction videos.
