The exhibition includes unique rings, necklaces, earrings, a babyrattle and candlesticks. The jewelery is mainly made of Fairtrade gold and silver, the rest of sustainable recycled precious metals. These treasures are inspired by plant pathology, fungi and Johanna's motto: Work and celebration make fine spirits.
Among these artisans are well-known goldsmiths and new young colleagues. The Utrecht silversmiths had their first cooparative exhibition five years ago together as "Utrecht Treasures". These expo’s arose from a group of goldsmiths with roots in Utrecht, who organize an “edelsmedencafé“ to get to know each other. Since the average jeweler is lonely at work in his or her own studio, the cafemeetings give both socially and professionally new impulses.
In 1906 Johanna Westerdijk, at the age of 23, was appointed as Director of the Laboratory Phytopathologisch Willie Commelin Scholten in Amsterdam. A year later, she was also appointed as Director of the Centraal Bureau Schimmelcultures that grew under her leadership to the largest collection of fungal cultures in the world. In 1917 she became Dutch first female professor. This led to 56 doctoral students, of whom almost half are women. This year we celebrate her contribution to science.
At the exhibition, a publication of each participating goldsmith appears especially for this exhibition crafted piece is recorded with his inspiration.
