Meesterlijk 2014

Hozan Zangana. Participant at Meesterlijk 2014

Meesterlijk, an event for design, applied arts and food takes place from 28/30 November  at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam.

The date coincides with my trip to Edinburgh, where I will present our jewelry at the invitation of 13threads.
So I am not able to visit Meesterlijk but I’ve heard that the event is really worth while going.

I’m especially curious about the beautiful and interesting work of Hozan Zangana.

This is what they say about Hozan Zangana: “Using his fascinations as a child growing up in Iraq and combining them with his experiences as an adolescent in the Netherlands, Hozan Zangana (Kirkuk, 1983) tries to create form by using these two different worlds as inspiration. He is a very intuitive designer and describes his process as “creating form by letting my heart guide my hands, silencing my mind”.

And what do you think of the Meesterlijk menu created by Gijsbert Bianchi and Janna Rijpma including this dish? Roasted sweet potato with honey, chili flakes, rosemary and lemon. Mmmm …
