Introducing the Earth Collection from artist Marie Michielssen. A profound love of paper and prints and the reuse of materials has inspired Marie Michielssen to create a series of characteristic vases in papier-mache for Serax. Playing with volumes, she creates a new visual print. The unique, traditional character is not only reflected in the print, but also in the shape and colours.
Marie says, "I’ve always had a fascination for paper. As a child, I loved drawing on paper, a love that grew even stronger later, during my degree course in graphic design; we only ever worked on paper in our classes, never digitally. What’s more, you can manipulate paper the way you want; you are the one who determines what the end product will look like and you are not dependent on an instrument to transform the material."
About Marie Michielssen: An established member of the in-house design team at Serax for over 20 years, Marie has created countless designs inspired by and intended for everyday life. Her designs have a strong focus on functionality, but because she only works with materials that have soul, this is in no way at the expense of the aesthetic of her work as each and every one of her designs clearly shows. Marie designs two collections a year for Serax and says "I often make my prototypes, or the draft versions of my pieces, from the leftover materials we throw away at Serax. That means I get to work with many different materials and can experiment to my heart’s content."
