Maria Hees regularly exhibits in Holland and abroad and her work has been stocked in serveral different galleries and included in the collections of several important museums.

Statement

I am always looking for new techniques and materials, both for my jewellery and my bags. For my latest porcelain jewellery I use a new material developed together with the EKWC (European Ceramic Work Centre): porcelain which foames in the kiln, each time the result is a surprise. I made the iron jewellery together with a blacksmith in Mali, Africa & also in Mali I prepared the parchment for necklaces. The silicon necklaces are shaped by hand, I try to let them look like a sketch. For my bags I use various materials like fishleather from the Nile Perch of Lake Victoria, naturally tanned leather and neoprene.
