Collecting Colourful Memories
Imke was kind enough to share a bit about her tiny treasures:
exhibition so much! The brooch with the blue "libbard-rabbit" is a part of a hybrid-animal-collection I designed during my studies (in 2006) for a Design Conference. The clog is a typically dutch souvenir I bought at a flea-market in France ;-) The little brooch with the blue little flower is an very old enamel piece of jewelry from my mother (and before: grandma)..."
my childhood - one of my siblings or my mother tinkered, the in't veld chocolate package is from a little exquisite chocolate-manufacturer in Berlin my sister worked for.... and so on and so forth."
SILVER/GREY COLLECTION: The little lavender bouquet I gathered in my garden last summer, the little porcelain cat was a gift from friends when I was 4 years old and ill in bed after a little accident :-), the great silver spoons are from the Heartwear collection - a not-for-profit association (created by Li Edelkoort), that helps to sustain handcraft knowledge and so, collaborates with artisans to tailor their products for export, without compromising the skill, knowledge, culture and environment of the region involved (at trendunion.com)....they have such beautiful and handsome products!!!
