Series FLORA is handmade from real flowers or leaves that have been immortalized in ceramics. The earthy flowers and leaves that are immortalized in the earthly material ceramic is a special and intriguing chemical phenomenon. It shows the vulnerability of nature. The making of these series is a very delicate process that results in more failures than successes. That does not mean that when a piece of ‘living nature’ after it’s ‘versteend’ and emerges from the entire stoking process, the euphoria is great and delivers a special showpiece.

These series cups contain an apparent contradiction: the everyday functional form of a drinking cup, however, with a very fragile ‘ear’ which is obviously not suitable for drinking.
The objects consists of pottery and are (partly) glazed with white glossy glaze with golden details that is applied in some places, making the object an ornament. All in all a showpiece.
