L’Oriol em va passar fa unes dies l’enllaç d’aquesta artista holandesa i vaig quedar al·lucinada de la bellesa d’aquestes peces. Unes joies visuals amb papallones, libél·lules i altres insectes trobats. Preciós!

Oriol sent me the link of this Dutch artist and I was stunned with the beauty of these pieces. Visual jewels with butterflies, dragonflies and other insects she have found. Beautiful!

“A damaged butterfly, a broken twig, a bumblebee, some strangely grown weeds: I find all these unique discoveries in my path and then take them home to my studio. Here, I take my time to explore the objects and try to work out how I can show each one to it’s best advantage. My finds inspire me. While looking at them I can invent my own stories about their existence and their lives. By protecting these precious pieces under glass, I give the objects a second life and hope to inspire people to make up their own stories about them.”

Acabo de descobrir les peces d’aquest artista i és l’exemple perfecte de joier-escultor. Les seves peces són petites obres d’art, treballades fins l’últim detall i amb una delicadesa extraordinària. Les seves papallones i libèl·lules són al·lucinants!

I have just discovered the pieces of this artist and he’s the perfect example of jeweler-sculptor. His jewels are lovely works of art, worked to the last detail and with extraordinary delicacy. His butterflies and dragonflies are gorgeous!
