VISUAL ARTIST BASED IN GRONINGEN, THE NETHERLANDS
Prize for the Teacher of the Year (2017)
Commissioned by student organisation ISO (Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg) I designed the prize for the teacher of the year 2017 election. Starting from the ambition to make a prize that will be loved and cared for, I created a soft, pillow -like golden cup that is light weighted and cuddly. Winner Marc van Mil (professor and researcher in Biomedical Science at Utrecht University) and minister of Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussemaker both expressed their affection for the golden cup. It is produced by my loving and skilled mother.
