Zine Camp.

I collaborated in the organisation of this Zine Camp festival for WORM Rotterdam. I was involved in getting four workshops to happen and getting more participants involved. It was a wonderful experience filled with busy zine makers working together, interesting conversations and a lot of good energy.

Paper marbling workshop - marbleous!

The paper marbling workshop I organized was fun! It was 17 of us and the results were stunning. Even more so after getting high on turpentine. Lots of wows were heard during the process. Every print was a surprising result. Some people experimented with wood, which also gave nice results. Below is a video of 2 minutes of last night:


Here are some scans of some of my prints:

Moerwijk Hofjes transformation.

My architect friend (and now client) Oriana Kraemer asked me to design a book for her final project for the master in ®MIT (Restauration Modification Intervention Transformation). Here's a little sneak peak at the cover and flyleaf, I'll be posting more photos next week. It will be showing at the travelling Archiprix exhibition.

Beheaded Matilda.

This is the very first figure I made in my ceramics course. Matilda was born with a head on her shoulders. I stuck her to my studio window sill next to a cactus. When I got in the next morning, a dramatic scene awaited me: Matilda was lying on the floor and had been beheaded. Somehow I feel this was for the best. She's more interesting now.

Ceramic experiments.

Last year I tried pottery but was hopelessly bad at it. Still, my attraction towards clay remained, so I joined another course. This time no turning wheel involved, which allowed me to work at a slower, calmer pace. And I absolutely love it! These are the results of my first few goes. I will be continuing my experiments for the coming months.
