Glazed sculptural stoneware plate with mermaid figure in black and white slip decoration. "In Veryzer’s magical dream world, angels exchange secrets with mermaids, figures with geo-centric faces mingle with fear figures, and goddesses with dogs and cats stand beside winged horses and dragons. I was initially attracted to Veryzer’s work simply by the beauty of each object. His figures are joyful and innocent yet mischievous. Every figure, painted or sculpted, seems to possess a secret knowledge.”
