Bart Huijpen


Bart is fascinated by nature, by its shapes and structures. A traditionalist working with hard woods to create objects that celebrate his respect of the natural world.

Bart’s work is soothing and calm. Perhaps it is because he avoids, where he can, using anything but timber to create a piece. Relying on, centuries old, proven methods to create contemporary works of applied art. Where wood narrates and captivates.

    Cabinets of Curiosity

    We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

    If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

    Work in progress
