Today I show a photo-blog of my progress in the Inner Bark series.
They are inspired by the Popular I always meet during my morning walks with the dog.
It all started with taking pictures and making drawings, lots of them!
Then I made many tests in porcelainclay.
In the end I even made a little tree trunk sculpture to show the bark pattern,
ofcourse in small scale.
I did take pictures of everything and with them I made a small booklet.
In it I wrote all the thoughts and ideas connected to the collection.
It's nice to have a little drawing book when you develop a new line.
All this research led to a new collection.
I call it Cambia and is connected to the water element.
"The sapflow of a tree brings nutricion to the leaves, carries the nutricion so the tree can grow."
On request of a customer I developed a bracelet in this line. It is wonderful to see how the pattern is repeated in each element. Like the natural flow of a waterfall.
Left you see earrings with gold to accent the sapflow,
to the right a close-up of the bracelet on which I am working.
On November the 21st I will be presenting this new collection, here on the site with some special introduction prices. For my blog-subscribers I'll have something extra...
