Zuiderzee Settings | The Shop

tulip wood, ceramics | 65 x 136,6 x 103 cm | 2010

A piece of furniture that symbolizes "the shop" and the pharmacy. The ceramic items symbolize both candy and pharmacy pots. The still life on one piece of ceramic cloth shows a female vendor in front of a wall filled with pharmacy pots. The other piece of ceramic cloth shows children in front of a candy shop.
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.
