Celebrating Van Eyck
To celebrate the Van Eyck Year the city of Ghent has asked more than 70 local artisans to create a product or design inspired by the famous Ghent Altarpiece (which is currently under restoration). They practice a broad range of crafts, resulting in a great variety of products: jewellery, hats, floral arrangements, beer, rugs, shawls, handbags, ceramics, glassware… The variety on offer is tremendous! These exclusive products are sold through a dedicated concept store located in the Cloth Hall underneath the Belfry. I'm proud to say my pillows and phone cases can be found there too. ;-). My pillow cases are inspired by the rich flora and hidden layers of the Ghent Altarpiece.
