Elsa made the plants (and the pots) in the first picture all by hand from paper.


work in progress at IJM

These last days I helped Frank and his team making a new set. It will be used for a Dutch magazine. If it's published I'll show you.
We covered a wall and a bookshelf with paper. The result is always so nice. The wallpaper glue adds a nice touch to the paper and changes the colour slightly.

The paper and the soft colours made the whole room feel very calm. Wonderful to work in on a hot day like yesterday.

More images in my next two posts.

Don't know why I didn't show you more pictures of IJM when I started to work in my new studio. I'm planning to share more from now on. It's such a great place to go to for work.



My work is for sale at a new webshop: Vespoe.

"Vespoe, a Manhattan-based startup, is a new marketplace pioneered by students, alumni and faculty of art and design schools in the US and abroad to sell their works directly to buyers worldwide."(quoted from their website)

Susanne Boger

The wonderful world of jewellery from Susanne Boger.

Susanne had some of her work for sale at the former shop from Bonne and me.

Today she showed her work in her own atelier during open days at OT301 at the Overtoom in Amsterdam. More work can be found here.


my new clogs from Mr. José Leite

When I saw these clogs at kermisblauw I got so happy, especially after reading the story behind them. Alice Bernardo documents traditional and semi-industrial techniques in Portugal. These clogs were made by Mr. José Leite. He is 85 years old and still makes shoes.
They are for sale at the website from Alice.
I ordered a pair some time ago and they arrived rather quick in a nice package.
They are a little bit too big for me (my own fault, I'm always doubting which size to order online) but I love them nevertheless. They got a nice spot on the floor in my living room.
Besides being shoes they are a wonderful object made with a lot of dedication.
