Intro
For me the hexagon represents the connection of different people and cultures, of different histories and narratives. / Floor Max

Floor Max
The hexagon is the primary building block in Floor Max’s work. Several years ago she found an abandoned wasps’ nest and was fascinated by its construction: I was struck by how strong and yet delicate it was, how sturdy and simultaneously fragile. It was the hexagonal honeycomb structure that was responsible for the strength of that nest, which was built of a wafer-thin natural material, like paper. Floor subsequently observed hexagons in all kinds of architecture: in the floorplans, decorations and windows of Christian, Jewish and Islamic buildings. So it is not hard to see Moorish tiled floors from Granada in her brooches, mosques in her rings or cathedral domes in her necklaces.
For me the hexagon represents the connection of different people and cultures, of different histories and narratives, Floor Max explains. She also connects a range of materials in her pieces, such as silver, copper, felt and leather.
