In 2021 I graduated from the Institute of Art and Craft (IKA) in Mechelen (B). In my search for the possibilities of glass, I discovered glass fabric. That fired in a certain way becomes glass again. I like this material, its fragility in combination with heavy iron objects, or with textiles. For Ameland I have chosen my "faces", sea creatures and cabinets to display. Dreaming along the beach, mine at the port of Rotterdam, I always enjoy what can be found and to use it in my work. I like to play with various materials including skulls and bones to make my sculptures! Is it what you think it is, or is it slightly different? The fragility of my glass also appeals to the fragility of life. Fragile and yet unexpectedly strong. If it falls, it is not always broken. Design in combination with developing, inventing and trying out something new. Not the beaten track, but going my own way and learning from the mistakes, slips and (im)possibilities.
