Wood – shells – glass – metal – stones
Truth is not something outside to be realized, its something inside to be discovered
Coming from a totally different background,
I chose to follow this flow …
and give expression to my inspiration from inside …
feeling like a freefall
~ Willem-Frans Janssen ~
When your actions and thoughts strike
that living spark in you, engender your soul,
you work from that subterranean flow of
joy that runs like a laughing torrent in you
~ Rumi ~
The materials I use do come from natural resources.
Foremost waste I find and collect, such as glass from stained glass producers, metals from recycling units and wood from logging companies.
I am fascinated by shells through their natural colors, wide varieties and the depth they carry.
Every shell is unique; not one shell is identical.
Restaurants share their shells and grazing shells along our Dutch shores is one of my hobbies.
