Life and work

Nieweg studied interior design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam. His teacher Frieda Koch brought him into contact with ceramics. As an artist Nieweg is autodidact.

From the 1960s to the 1980s Nieweg lived and worked in Giethoorn, where he ran his own pottery studio. In the 1990s he moved to Monchique in Portugal, where he built several large ovens. He died a few years later at the age of 67.

Much of Nieweg's work was done in ceramics, examples are the reliefs he made for Zwolle and Heino.
