Intro
Maja’s work balances on the interface of decorative art, design and crafts. Characteristic is the use of meters of silver wire, and recently the introduction of thousands of pieces of chain. The results are poetic and enchanting. 

Artist list

Maja Houtman
Especially for this exhibition, she created a series of tea strainers. During her trip to the Santa Fe Symposium and the Saul Bell Award earlier this year. she collected beautiful pieces of wood. These became the handles of tea strainers she made to honour the tea culture of Taiwan. This combination impersonated her sensational travels of 2019.

During the last twenty years, I developed my own style of wirework. It evolved from modest baskets and small jewelry into objects, dishes and exclusive jewelry-pieces. Maja Houtman loves experimenting, the work grows in her hands. Because of the intensity of the work, Maja has a steady, but limited production.
