COLLECTIE ARNHEM PRODUCT - 2012
We see our crammed agenda’s. We see there is no time for boredom and enjoying the little things. Everything is grand, large and vehement.
We feel stress and paralysis.
We appreciate suprises. Let nothing be predictable and use the unexpected.
We wish for protest. Protest by standing still and enjoying.

TACTILE OBSESSIONS - 2011
Hair is controversial
When alive it is inviting, soft, sensual
However, when hair is disattached from the body it invokes revulsion.
Hair has memories
In earlier centuries it was very common to make jewellery out of the hair of a lost one.
Hair has a tactility to it
Is there a way to revive hair as a precious material?
JE ME TE SOUVIENS - 2010
Je me te souviens is a mourning jewel, based on 19th century hair jewellery. In earlier centuries it was very common to carry a lock of hair of a loved one with you. Nowadays this is barely imaginable. Hair seems to have become a taboo in the same way as death has become a taboo. However the idea and symbolism behind carrying a lock of hair with you, really appealed to me. Therefore, in this project I looked for a way to maintain this ritual, without forcing the outside world to be confronted with it. In the end I made a locket of porcelain inspired by abstracting shadows, hair, braids and coffins, without it being over obvious.
