Cor Dam was born in Delft in 1935 and studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Netherlands. During his career he has worked as a designer for Royal Delft and as a sculpture teacher at the Delft University of Technology. He is an accomplished painter, sculptor and ceramist. Below are a couple more of Dam's pieces as well as photos I found of his studio.  He has a website, but it doesn't show much of his work.
