Michiel Jansen 🇳🇱

Michiel Jansen is working for many years with slate stone. It is a immemorial material. This stone is layered by nature and has a beautiful surface texture.

As a sculptor, he rearranged the layers and builds new forms out of them. It’s starting with a sketch without thinking if the designed form can be worked out of slate. 

Form contrasts play a major role and spatiality and light effects are essential. 

The plates slate piece by piece separately processed and then they are connected to each other with a metal interior construction, and made into a whole.
