‘And like the moon, we must go through phases of emptiness to feel full again’ ~ unknown
According to traditional Chinese beliefs, the moon is a carrier of human emotions. It is associated with gentleness and brightness, expressing the beautiful yearnings of the Chinese. The round shape symbolises family reunion and togetherness.
Moon Vessel signifies the importance of understanding and experiencing our emotions so we can express love.

Natural and deeply rich in colour, this full grain leather patinas with plenty of character.
Please note that all pieces are made completely by hand, therefore no two pieces will be identical. There will also be subtle imperfections; these include variations in the material as well as evidence of the making process. My work celebrates a slow and ecological creative process by connecting with the organic elements and working with natural materials. Every piece is one of a kind, handcrafted in my studio here in Amsterdam.
