Yesterday Annie Thieleman and I went to Biggekerke, for the open day at 'Beeld in Balans' ('Sculpture in Balance'), Schuitvlotstraat 1. This atelier (in a farm) is a beautiful workplace where sculptors can work, inside and in warmer weather, outside. Joep Aerssens welcomed us with a cup of coffee and told us about the atelier and the works that are exhibited.

Sculpture by Erna Bostelaar

Sculpture by Tinneke Roose: Joep told that in a car accident, that this sculpture is the only one that remained whole. This is why this sculpture got a special place on a pedestal in the atelier (see photo of interior above).

A curious goat...

The goat keeps the grass neatly of the 'Vliedberg'.



Church (Nederlands Hervormde Kerk), ca 1400

In this church was a nice exhibition of quilts.

This saturday was also an event day. There was a market where you can buy stuff (the proceeds will go to the charities).

A bakker showed how Zeeuwse bolus are made. They are delicious: warm and crunchy.

You could guess how many buttons were sewn...

It's always fun to see what is being sold on the market.

In a small second hand store (in a house room, nobody there, only a box for the money), I found this book by Konrad Lorenz (translation of Hans Warren): Ik sprak met viervoeters , vogels en vissen (originally title: Er redete mit dem Vieh, den Vögeln und den Fischen). My mother had this book at home (long ago...). I always wanted to read this book again and now I could buy it for 1 euro. And the small black statue of a Hippopotamus: I bought on the market for 10 cent.
