Inspired by the power of words, Jule Cats translates stories into physical products. Her new collection ‘RISE’ (2018) is based on the urge of holding on to memories. Sometimes letting go of the past is hard, but essential in order to move on and rise from the ashes. The chosen materials derived from her previous collection ‘IN DISGUISE’, where she paid attention to home demolition in Dutch Cities.
Available in three sizes, from 30 to 70 cm.
Now on show at Mint Gallery London
and Gallery Pouloeuff, Naarden – Vesting.
All the collections are handmade, therefore each product has its own unique details.
Jule Cats: "The unusual connection between the contrasting materials I work with, keeps inspiring me."
'IN DISGUISE' VASES
The handmade series ‘IN DISGUISE’ is inspired by home demolition within Dutch cities. For a few years Jule Cats has been living in houses that were on the list to be demolished. In this period she learned how it feels to be forced to leave your home. With this series, she reveals this theme that lies beneath the surface. The concrete refers to the dust of a demolished house, while the refined polyester reflects the emotions surrounding the theme.
Available in three models: the Heart,
Diamond and Rock.
The ‘MEMORIES’ collection is part of the
‘IN DISGUISE’ project. The concrete refers to the dust of a demolished house, while the polyester captures its beauty. Every object is carefully made by hand, and can be used as ornament or paperweight.
Available in multiple colours.
