Unique ceramic mask. Each piece get’s a certificate of authenticity, signed by the designer.
The origins of a mask can be traced back thousands of years. Often surrounded by rituals or social gatherings. It’s a tool to honor our ancestors and heroes. Become a different person, or even commit a crime.
“All of this history, rituals, duality and meaning are a great starting point for my investigation. How can I translate all of this information into a personal design? What material should I use to make a piece that reflects the profoundness of the subject?”
This duality is the starting point for the project “Dekmantel”. A start of many questions; What do I show to the world, or better, to the people around me? Do I show my most inner self or do I hide behind a ‘mask’?
“With this project, I want to stop people in their tracks. Let them think about their own masks in relationships with others.”
