The Dustcollectors are inspired by objects and shapes who at first sight have a dual use-aged; function and decoration. When this function disappears it becomes a non-product, taking space.
 Like the classical vases you see on antique cupboards and mantelpieces, they have the vase function but are rarely used that way. They are status symbols of the past and used as decoration.

Making Dustcollectors

The handmade pieces are made of mixed and colored resin; drawing and splattering
open structures on moulds and shapes. The resin works as decoration and construction in one material.

The Dustcollectors are the result of an expressive momentum where color, texture and image come together. Each Dustcollector tells its own story. This makes all pieces unique and one of a kind.
