And we all shine on ... like the moon and the stars and the sun......
I am a dutch artist . I try to create the things that i feel i have to make . Craftmanship is always essential to it and fashion does not play any role. What people generally see as art is beyond my interest, my only goal is to create beauty. I have done quite a lot of things such as sculpting in marble and other stones as well as wood ; modelling and firing clay ; painting ; making strange and weird objects; writing song-lyrics for rock bands, poetry for my love and myself, and now i'm into birdhouse-making..... ..lately even into clocks and home altars and personal shrines (my god, where does it stop) The last things is what you people will see here on ETSY.

If you're interested in my sculpture, you can see a series of sculptures about the tragic of insanity on my blog ; Karel Roelofs's dingen. The sculptures are however not for sale.
The bird houses,bird feeders,clocks and shrines are for sale, but there is only a few of them for it takes a lot of time making them as they are all one of a kind and not duplicatable.
Each one is unique and totally made of recycled materials, often antique and from all over the world, the bird houses and feeders carefully treatened to resist to all types of weather conditions, though they will last longer of course when placed out of the sun and the rain. In fact the coloured ones are best placed under protruding rooftrims avoiding direct sun exposure combined with rain . In that way they will last for years in their original splendor.
The houses all have an easy to open door for inspection,and are hard to enter for most predators like crows, magpies and jays. Made of 2 cm wood for isolation , they all have ventilation openings and drained bottoms.
The measures are standard for small singing birds and sparrows. These bird houses and feeders will embellish your house or garden in a very special, original and artistic way. The clocks and shrines will do the same, but they are for indoor use only.
Let beauty awake!
