Inside & Outside

As nature woke up during the past few months and the garden surrounding our studio became gradually greener, the idea sprouted to organize a new spring presentation. And just like nature surprises us yet again with its vitality, we would also like to surprise you during our Inside & Outside presentation. To this end we have invited two designers and a photographer to help us shape our spring presentation. By doing so, we have obtained a special mix of indoor and outdoor objects that combine excellently with our hand-made objects and jewelry. - The Jewelry Story

Saturday May 17th and Sunday May 18th, De Slotplaats, Bakkeveen
The Tea House
1100 until 1800

Inside & Outside

The Spring Presentation of Atelier Jan Kerkstra and Marion Pannekoek will be held at Landgoed De Slotplaats in Bakkeveen, The Netherlands and will include work by

The Jewelry Story/Atelier Jan Kerkstra and Marion Pannekoek
Every day we are inspired by the tranquility of nature that we experience ‘outside’ our studio and what this ‘inside’ evokes in us. In our work, you’ll find natural materials such as walnut and cherry wood. At the Presentation Inside & Outside we show new and recent work, including necklaces and large silver rings. 

Louise Cohen: a playful perspective on common objects
Designer Louise Cohen has been selected by the curator of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Her work is playful, can often be applied as a practical tool and offers a different perspective on ordinary objects in a light manner. During our spring presentation, Louise will exhibit her Life is Great collection outside, including her fire table and inside the Life is a Party series. 

Photographer Ruurd Jelle van der Leij: a pure look on nature
Another way in which we bring ‘outside’ inside, is by means of the pictures of Ruurd Jelle van der Leij. He will exhibit photos of birds that have been photographed and edited in a ‘high-key’ fashion. This results in light, white photos with a happy, clear and pure feel. 

And yours truly,

13threads: handmade fashion from beautiful fabrics
Lois Sturgeon from 13threads is, just like Louise Cohen, an international designer. In her atelier in Edinburgh, Scotland, Lois makes garments and accessories from beautiful materials, and she sells them through her online store on Etsy to fashion lovers around the world. For the Inside & Outside spring presentation, Lois will bring amongst other things dresses, (tweed) jackets, tunics and hats, which you can feel, examine and fit.
