A few weeks ago Bibi van der Velden and mother Michele Deiters (both known for their artistic talents and creations) invited me to their atelier and studio White Space for a High blogger Tea. Interested I was listening to Bibi's stories about her jewelry lines and inspiration sources when my eye fell on a big sculptured face out of iron in a black box of glass who was staring me in the eyes.
Michele later explained me that she and daughter Bibi joined forces to create this sculptured iron face out of their fascination for time. "Time is a very beautiful and yet so scary thing. It's here and already gone when you think of it. we people like to control time, we like to hold it but, time has no form. It slips through our fingers" Michele told me. "The iron face reflects light, it's changing shapes like time is changing ours". Inspired I was listening to the words of Bibi and Michele and left with a mind full of questions and goodiebag ofcourse ;) !! I wanted to know more.. more about time and their vision on their artwork called "Confronting Time". Luckily the goodiebag included a great book about these art pieces and answered almost all my questions. I carried and read the book during my trip to Paris. This book is filled with inspiring writings and pictures about their collaboration and creations. A must-have for everyone who wants to explore time and the beauty of art.
