Anti-macasser

Posted on July 15th, 2012

My graduation project started with a massive collection of old and used ship rope from the harbor of Rotterdam. These ropes I forced into the frivolous regime to create a lace pattern and create a humongous tatted doily carpet. This work still accompany’s my exhibitions and shows the roots of the tatting technique as well as its powerful knots in elegant structures. It was a part of Jamais Vu, an exhibition in Haarlem at the Lichtfabriek, as a part of the Kunstlijn in 2012. ¬†And It was brought back to sea were it lay beside the Tres Hombres at Sail Den Helder 2013.
