Thoughts of Times Past
Maple 16 x 16 x 2.5
I have long been fascinated with the art of indigenous cultures from around the world. Upon first inspection it seems so simple and yet at the same time is very powerful. I hope to transcend these cultures in my quest to explore a personal aesthetic. – Douglas Fisher

INTRODUCING – MAARTEN SCHADDELEE
Carrara Marble, Marble turntable base 18 x 9.5 x 4
A few years ago, my wife Nadine and I were in Florence, Italy. Walking through the beautiful narrow streets we walked past an old stone church and heard gorgeous, young voices coming from inside. They were rehearsing for a concert that night. Of course, we went to the concert.
That night I not only heard the music, I saw the music swirl around us. I will never forget the experience. It was a few years later that I remembered that fortunate experience and knew I had to put it in sculpture. – Maarten Schaddelee

My hands make the voice of my heart visible. – Maarten Schaddelee

Garnet, Snowflake Obsidian and Onyx Dangly Necklace
I am one of the few metal artists in the country extensively using stone inlay in my work and I constantly experiment to find unexpected and non-traditional ways of incorporating stone into jewellery pieces. I love to play with the surprise of asymmetrical designs and unexpected material combinations.
