The Surinamese rainforest is overwhelming. An enormous diversity of trees, plants and animals. An evolving lab of color, shape and material. There are many exotic fruit species in Suriname.
The shapes of the Suriname Collection refer to the various growing stages of tropical fruits. The clay is dug up from an old mine in the jungle and purified by hand. The red earth collection is a limited edition, made during my two year (2017-2018) working period in Suriname. At the moment I am working on an edition in porcelain.
