Carbon Cloud | 2005

carbon_cloud_1_SBP_LR

Two shelving units and a bed are covered in a carbon cloud as if coiled by a giant spider. From the inside out, the carbon cloud is like a three-dimensional dream catcher. From the outside the featherweight carbon structure is a bubble hard to burst, proposing a border between the real world and a sleeping place. In the shelving a few fantasies about products are placed. A collection of squashes as light shades, a shrunken golden stool, a knitted lamp, the ‘anarchistic chess’ game and a seamlessly upholstered chair are stored as if ready to be dreamed.

As showed in Milan, in the back ground Wieki Somers' ‘bath boat’ and in the front a corner of Jurgen Beys’ ‘dust furniture’.

City Structures | 2004

city_structures_SBP_LR

In the summer of 2004 I spent 3 months in the European ceramic work center in Den Bosch playing with clay, shapes and moulds. This resulted in a few vases and some other objects that where presented in the exhibition ‘A fine mess.’ at Brutto Gusto in Rotterdam. This is one of the 3 projects I did during this period.

Three vases that try to explain terms used for city structures (left to right):
Agglomeration Vase - one big vase confiscated smaller surrounding vases.
Conglomeration Vase - small vases stuck together creating one new big vase
Vinex Vase - a vase with its own vinex-location* in the shape of a small cancer,

(*Large outer city areas with massive new housing development, if you're not Dutch, don't even try getting it)

Not for sale.

This resulted in a few vases and some other objects that where presented in the exhibition ‘A fine mess.’ at Brutto Gusto in Rotterdam. This is one of the 3 projects I did during this period.

The shape of this vase was dug out with a chisel and a plaster scraper in two blocks of plaster that served as a mould later on.
So instead of making a positive first and then trying to cast a mould, this vase skipped that part in the normal ceramic production process.

Not for sale.

This resulted in a few vases and some other objects that where presented in the exhibition ‘A fine mess.’ at Brutto Gusto in Rotterdam. This is one of the 3 projects I did during this period. I've seen vases with tigers printed on them, I've seen vases with a tiger skin pattern, but I never saw a tiger jumping through a vase. I tried to freeze that action I never saw.

Anarchistic Chess | 2004

anarchistic_chess_3_SBP_LR

These plaster-dipped sculptures are made in the European Ceramic Work center as well. Together they form ‘Anarchistic Chess’, which is a contradiction in terminus itself of course. "Chess without rules? Come on!!" I see them as very nice material samples that still have to find their use. Maybe some day you'll find something else from my hand that has the same feel, look and/or production technique, but I don't know what yet. In the mean time I am open to suggestions and you will have to do with these.

The sandy ashtray was made as a prop for the exhibition “The Puffin club” (see above). The plastic mould can endlessly produce ashtrays out of sand.

“Huh?” | 2003

Yes, this is another coloring book by an artist/designer. It’s just that in this A4/12 page book even the artist didn’t know what he was drawing. It is just there to try to get you started with some pencils, paint or whatever you would like to draw with. It is called “huh?” because that seems to be the internationally accepted term for: “What’s this?”
