Peter Hiemstra is, and these are his own words, a visual artist who creates “picture stories”.
Sculptures that escape the ordinary, everyday life, visual storytelling often somewhere between bizarre and witty, honest and vulnerable.
A few weeks ago Peter came to our atelier and asked Jan and me to think about a silver rim for a small charm he made. It is a beautiful nice clay pendant with an image of a bear on it.
Jan and I chose a “fairytale” approach and encased the pendant in a silver edge of “battlements” surrounded by a thread of silver “pearls”.
