The Art of RAW – Nienke Sikkema
New platform for young design talent to create art pieces with denim waste
Continuing in their quest to push creative boundaries, G-Star RAW is collaborating with multiple young creatives on a brand-new series of art objects. In line with the brand’s responsible initiatives, each artist has been given the freedom to experiment using denim waste, creating unique pieces within their own disciplinary whilst upcycling materials.
Nienke Sikkema – ‘Blown In Blue’
Nienke Sikkema (1988) is a renowned Dutch designer and G-Star’s fourth artist collaborator for The Art of RAW. Her inspiration is taken from Delfts Blauw earthenware, basing her glass designs on the iconic shapes and colors. After creating a mould using staple parts of G-Star jeans – like pockets and zippers- she produced a trilogy of vases named ‘Blown In Blue’.
‘When you work together in glass it’s like a choreography. Everything has to fit together’ – Nienke Sikkema
