Three exhibitors with three groups of work in which heat and force are used to ‘mistreat’ various materials to achieve form, colour and texture: 

Paul Derrez beats silverplate into organic forms like bowls, beakers and boxes… with colourful acrylic accents in the form of a foot, lid or handle. 

Floor Max uses burning and flattening to achieve the naturalness of her threedimensional floral forms constructed from wire. Thus an herbarium of flowers is created, which never before existed, but are now worn as brooches. 

Floor Mommersteeg melts and flattens nylon thread and makes from this transparent structures: rings, brooches and vessels, opaque or in myste-rious fading colours. 

Labour intensive, manual and repetitive processes are not only emotionally satisfying for the maker, but give an insight and control of a particular technique, material and form. Concentration and experimentation during the creative process leads to new discoveries and a refining of detail. It is the perfecting of the ordinary that makes these ‘trinkets’ so special!
