Discovered …. and « adopted » ! at the HDK Graduation Show 2014 – Jewellery Art & Design BA level
« Valse Lente
I drew lines and I wrote
”As wire they grew out of the two dimensional.
I did not know about these rooms”.
I dip paper in porcelain while thinking of piles of paper that affect me.
Because I have discovered the qualities of porcelain and want to find out more.
White and ground.
Fragile and innocent.
So close to breaking.
As life is frail and close.
As life is beautiful. As my life is beautiful.
Next to the darkness.
I make a construction, as a protection for the fragile.
With a line that does not cover but coexists.
As the shadow.
Then, when time has gone and the fragile breaks,
something remains. »
