I would like to present you some new glass domes filled with a porcelain natural world…
Whether I’m looking at a dried seedpod or a tiny wildflower, natural forms and shapes delight me. It’s the small details of nature and especially flowers that inspire me as you’ll discover in these glass domes.
I don’t know how it is for you but I often feel as everything in our lives is often so fast-paced, instantaneous and immediate that we fly through days, weeks and even years without the opportunity to stop and take a breath.
Surrounding ourselves with flowers reaffirms presence- who we are and the world we are so fortunate to live in. Flowers remind us to live in the moment; they are temporary, but by embracing them in our lives we get to enjoy the beauty of their transience.
I couldn’t live without flowers and really need them to be part of my daily life. Whether it’s by sowing them, using them into a bouquet, drinking tea of flower petals or creating them in porcelain. Every day I learn more about them and how wonderful and divers they are. I hope these glass domes will invite you to take a closer look at nature…
and be surprised
and feel the wonder for its beauty!

Some of these glass domes will be exhibited next month at the museum of Dordrecht during the exhibition “Diepgeworteld” (Deeply rooted). More information is coming soon!
