Wilderness, infinite colour-pallets; Violent yet delicate.
The celebration of life:
We embrace diversity, Surrealism and witty jokes,
the deception of texture, fluidity and unpredictability
To root and to uproot, colouring the transparent and forging the unreal. Skeletons of past architecture to highlight the invisible movement in time. Classic not classic; to awaken a new evolution.

The Pool is a Jewelry Collective based in Amsterdam. A team of fifteen artists, ranging from emerging to both mid-career and established makers. We run a shop in the historic heart of Amsterdam that features our members' works, it is an original space to view and buy pieces created by contemporary talents. The Pool has grown and evolved since its creation in 2020, going through cycles of transformations.

For Obsessed 23, we are excited to present a group exhibition in which every piece has been made collaboratively between members. Our Cherished Chemistries, true jewelry Frankensteins, will be made by not one but by up to three pairs of hands. A laboratory of techniques, mediums and imaginaries.

Exhibtion Dates: 10 November- 26 November. Opening hours: Wed - Sun 12:00-18:00 h.
Opening with drinks 11th of November 17:00 - 21:00 h.
