I am currently working on this project, the first exhibition opens at the 15th of march at MUHNAC - Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência - in Lisbon. You can follow the process on my social media.



1 pollen grain and 7 seeds

Ceramic sculptures inspired by the photographs taken under a microscope by photographer, artist and

scientist Rob Kesseler. Those fascinating images (published with his fellow scientists Madeline Harley and Wolfgang Stuppy) reveal the incredible beauty of seeds and pollen grains - otherwise invisible to the human eye.


When I first saw the photographs I knew immediatly that I would recreate the seeds three-dimensionally. So this is the result of nature, inspiring first a photographer-artist-scientist, and then in turn a ceramist, to portray them in a larger scale.


3D >> 2D >> 3D


Of course my sculptures are not 3D-prints, but an imaginitive interpretation of the photographs. From a certain point in the process I let go of the microscopic image and tried to develop coherence within the piece itself.


I hope you like the result as much as I enjoyed the process.


To be continued.
