Rust is a plant disease that attacks leaves. I’ve created a collection based on this disease for an exhibition in the ‘Oude Hortus’ museum in Utrecht, organised by the Utrechtse Schatten.
This year’s theme was on Johanna Westerdijk who was the first woman to have taught at the university of Utrecht a century ago. Her specialty was in plant diseases and fungi.
This collection is made of fair trade silver and 18ct gold. There are two different sets in the collection, a black set and a silver set. The black set is silver that I’ve put in a solution to turn it black.
