MEET THE MAKER
Ruben van der Scheer is fascinated by the power and endlessness of the circle. Powerful minimalist objects are created on the wood lathe that invite touch and at the same time encourage contemplation. Although the circular movement is a recurring element in all his work, the objects show great diversity. His oeuvre contains both wall objects and standing sculptures. The individual works of art differ in size and finish. Depending on the drawing and color of the wood, it is decided whether or not to paint the wood or to process it in another way. Ultimately, form plays the leading role in the work.

It is fun and educational to go through an intensive process with other makers focused on the entrepreneurial side of being an artist. It is fascinating to get stories and information from all kinds of angles about setting up and maintaining a healthy company. I have become motivated and see more opportunities to take the entrepreneurial side of my work seriously, without losing the fun.’
