Project Message in a Bottle

Project Message in a Bottle is an ongoing art project which I started in 2013. It quite plainly consists of small pieces of art put into a bottles and which are eventually released to be found by random strangers.

Miniatures

Miniatures of all kinds have been part of my artwork from the very beginning in 2008. It all started with miniature blank books sold in matchboxes. Now they feature big in my Small World series of messages in bottles, and of course as part of my latest book "346. A Journey While Staying as Still as Possible", an edition of 10 where the first 2 copies come with a replica model of the hospital room No. 346 where I spent 7 weeks prior to the birth of my twins in 2011.

Women with Hats

A series of bookmarks that started with women with hats and other headware, and by now widened up to also include the occasional women sporting interesting hair or hair accessories.

The prints are made using different techniques and are given out as gifts and artist cards.

They are part of my effort to portrait the breadth of women faces and beauty beyond the mainstream notion of female beauty.

What can I do for you?

My artist books can be purchased in my own webshop as well as through different rare book sellers. Please see the Where To Buy for details. There you will also find links to where I offer ready made blank books and supplies. Please do contact me for information about comissions and workshops.
Blank Books
I am taking commissions for books, for example blank books that serve as guest books at weddings or other functions, as well as small books with content.

Workshops
I am a teacher until deep down and am happy to teach everything I know. I do one-on-one sessions and small workshops in my studio, and have been hired for larger workshops. You can also purchase written instructions from me, or bookbinding kits for different skill levels.

Supplies
In my Büchertiger Supplies Webshop I sell coloured linen thread, ideal for bookbinding and notoriously hard to find, especially in Europe. You probably won't find anywhere a larger selection of colours.
