…I was invited by the city of Breda in Holland, to create a 14 meter long by 1.5 meters high tiled wall for their new Sonsbeeck municipal swimming pool.
This was, and still remain one of the most exciting projects I was involved in.
Through this project I had the chance to meet some incredible people of rare qualities.
In particular, the artists at Tichelaar, Holland’s oldest ceramic company.
They’ve departed from scaled down drawing which I provided them with, and through a very laborious process, they turned it into a magnificently colourful tiled wall.
Since our daughter, Alma, was born, we promised ourselves to go there with her and see it again.
Ten years after the opening we found the wall in its same immaculate condition as it was on its first day. We left Breda with a big smile on our faces.
