The human touch

  • • Clarisse highlights imperfections in her work
  • • She uses traditional techniques in an unusual manner
  • • She keeps her production as local as possible

Clarisse Bruynbroeck has been passionate about art and architecture since she was a child. A growing fascination for daily objects and the human body led her to study art jewellery design. The influence of fine art, design and architecture has always remained very important for her work. Clarisse uses traditional techniques in her own personal way. She also likes to accentuate the simplicity of daily life in her objects, which she does by leaving visible marks of the techniques she uses, like that of the blow of a hammer or of a soldering point. “I don’t aim for perfection at all, imperfections for me actually have an added value. I want to highlight the human touch in my work.” Clarisse founded her studio Woche, in Antwerp, in 2016.
