to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

abstract & homemade

The announcement of a homemade bazaar in the space of Croxhapox caught my attention.  The focus was on artists who strive uniqueness in creating "slow made" items.

I must admit I was somehow disappointed in the small scale of the event, but I'm glad I saw the following. 

I was attracted to the work of one artist and one designer.

Katleen Deleu had a wall covered in her small studies for future larger works.  I simply loved the delicate collages of notebook papers.  It reminds me of shadow play , the patterns of shadows always capture my attention.

So we left the homemade bazaar leaving a blank spot on the wall.

More abstract patterns appeared...

Stunning handbags... look at these gorgeous feet!

Exquisite leather...

Great colours...

Every item is unique and finished to perfection. A model will never be produced in the same colour twice.  The weaving in the lower bag are very narrow strips of leather woven with metal.
