In the 80's I started to design and make modern lace.
At first I made it all by myself, later I went to courses at Martine Bruggeman and I attended a 2-year course called "Kant speciaal".
I never dated my
patterns, so I cannot show them in chronological order.
These designs are from the period 1980 - 1994
My first pieces were figurative and 2-dimensional
my first free designs
I made the lace first, then I had to dye it.
Afterwards they became abstract but still 2 dimensional.
I became faster with the designs
A little 3-dimensional.
a lovely platter of 4 birds with
now entirely 3-dimensional
2 jokes, lace does not have to be so serious.
3 versions of the same necklace
These designs are
from the book "Kloskant in 3-dimensies".
I designed this book in 1993 but it has been sold out for a very long time.
I still have some copies to sell.
