Zuiderzee Settings | LadyLike

tulip wood, ceramics | 65 x 65 x 47 cm | 2010

This side table with ceramic suitcase is inspired on the habit of women that were showing off in their beautiful clothes, often carrying a little box as suitcase or handbag. This box was often put away in the house on a side table, almost like a showpiece. The still life on the ceramic piece of cloth shows two ladies showing off en route.
With it's soft coloured tulip wood combined with white soft ceramic drawers topped with matte gold glaze this really shows a soft and very romantic side of the history of the Dutch Zuiderzee. Even the handmade paintings are much more soft then usually.
