rings and brooches Souvenir Museum Van Loon, 2004 | silver, sealing wax | rings: 30 x 35 x 30 mm,
brooches: 55 x 60 x 40 mm

Souvenir Museum Van Loon
Contemporary designs for a 17th century canal house.
The Dutch Scultors Association and Galerie Ra, in conjunction with Museum Van Loon, invited artist and designers working in the Netherlands to create a design for a souvenir inspired by the collection or ambience of Museum Van Loon. My starting point was the family crest of the family Van Loon, of which I used the silhouette. The "Zegel (lak) ringen" are based upon the principle of the signet rings, which people used to stamp their family crest into the sealing wax. I reversed this principle.

chatelaine, 2006 | silver, plastic | 100 x 65 x 15 mm

Challenging the Chatelaine
This chatelaine was designed for the exhibtion "Challenging the Chatelaine! curated by Helen W. Drutt where
artists were invited to make a chatelaine for their "rolmodel".
My design was made for Bernd & Hilla Becher. They are not my role models as such, but I like their work, their way of looking at things. The Bechers photograph their objects (industry, machines, factories etc.) isolated from their enviroment, using non-dramatic light; a very sober and non-spectacular, objective registration. Yet all their objects have a plastic, corporal feel to it, especially their "blastfurnices". I see a loneliness and an abandonment in the photographs, which really moves me. They make me aware of my humanity and vulnerability.
