Studio Bertjan Pot


The project

In 2010, Bertjan Pot started a material experiment with the aim of constructing a flat carpet by threading ropes. Ultimately, the experiment resulted in a series of impressive masks.


Without being commissioned, the designer plays with the material. He creates imaginative designs. Joy radiates from these masks.


In the execution, the concept of craftsmanship is central. Moreover, this work represents the development that a design can go through. The designer travels from his initial goal, a carpet, to a new work that is an absolute expression of free design: a mask. A cheerful and attractive design.

— The power of Pol’s masks lies in their potential for communication, for individual specimens are open to varying interpretations, evoking feelings of emotion, reviving childhood fears or raising a smile.
