Project Description


Re-design of Dutch Wooden Clogs
Hole Drawing on Wood
Dutch Wooden Clogs

Hong Kong and China based artists and designers were invited to re-created a pair of Dutch wooden clogs for a charity auction.
The clogs I designed have a pattern of small fish found on a Hong Kong wet market. The fish pattern is a line drawing overlaid and pierced into the wooden shoes. At the same time, joins the drilling technique joins wood craft with a fine and delicate effect.

The results were first shown as part of Detour during Businees of Design Week 2008 at the Red Elation Gallery, Wan Chai.
In May ’09 KLOMP! auction preview was showing at Three Pacific Place.
Proceeds of an on-line auction supported Oxfam Hong Kong’s ‘Teach the Teacher’ project in Gansu and Qinghai provinces, China.
KLOMP! auction is sponsored by The Consulate-General of The Kingdom of The Netherlands in Hong Kong.
