Old Fruit Versatile | 2004

old_fruit_versatile_3_SBP_LR

This old fruit asked for a different treatment. It became the ‘Old Fruit Versatile’ (See old fruits, tops and bottoms). We made a small batch of old fruits.. but the squash season is over, unfortunately we are no longer able to deliver these lights.

materials: squash
Not for sale.

Old Fruits, Tops and Bottoms | 2004

old_fruit_tops_and_bottoms_SBP_LR

Cutting those particular old dried fruits in half and equipping both halves with a 25watt bulb make these simple lampshades. The inside has a white coating to reflect as much light as possible. The outside was coated black. They were produced in a limited edition and are sold per 2 (one top, and one bottom to make a perfect match). The squash season is over, unfortunately we are no longer able to deliver these lights.

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)

Excavated Vase | 2004

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.

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.

Carbon Chair | 2004

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In cooperation with Marcel Wanders and inspired by the Carbon Copy, I made the Carbon Chair. This chair was completely hand coiled and is 100% carbon fiber and epoxy (so, no metal frame!). The pattern on the seat looks random (and the people who know me know I like random) but actually reflects the strength patter. Every point on the rim of the chair is connected with the 4 points connecting the seat to the base-frame. The Carbon Chair is sold through Moooi.

materials: black carbon fibre drained in epoxy resin
dimensions: h:79 w:47 d:49 cm, seating height: 46 cm

For sales please go to: www.moooi.com
