why don't the shrivelled up things in my fruit bowl look this good? :o) I like the stitched pomegranite very much, the colour is lovely.

How do you do it, Mien? You've got these minimal images of dried, shrivelled, spotted fruit and seeds, and not only are they beautiful, they are moving! And those sewn-together pieces - I think of a little wood-creature on a seat of moss, stitching with rough and awkward fingers towards a magic coat. Love it.

I find your work very succinct, essential,pared down, intriguing in its simplicity.

These look interesting. I have seen someone make a pair of shoes out of dried leeks - I wish I had a photo for you.

This is so delicate and precise. Tiny bombs of meaning.

Cool stuff! The sewn pomegranite skin makes me think of Tim Burton.
