Erik Hoedemakers

Some people are just born to make things, it’s in their DNA. Like an inner voice, it drives them. Erik Hoedemakers could have equally been a sculptor or a painter, but the medium he chose was wood and being a practically minded person he knew he wanted to combine both beauty and functionality.

His designs

His work is a perfect embodiment of the traditions of Dutch heritage, elegantly appealing and practical. It never tries to steal the show through shouting, but instead confidently and quietly, it waits to be noticed because it invariably does.

    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
