From her home based studio....surrounded by an energetic garden in which fruit, veggies, flowers and herbs grow and birds bath and play in the bird bath....Perth (Western Australia) based Dutch artist Diana van der Harst creates a Leftover Universe where Tender Time Sighs. From this universe, inspired by life, her paintings and drawings evolve which she then translates into handmade 'slow' textiles, turns them into fashion and interior products, and onto ceramic homewares made in silence on her pottery wheel. Even though she embraces and promotes the old handwork techniques....like embroidery, basketry, felting, batik and pottery....having her images printed on quality products with modern machines, she finds just as exciting. Mixing the valuable old ways with the new and taking the opportunity to share images....her personal and universal stories....with a broader audience in a sustainable way is what she believes in and works for....with the dream to expand her Leftover Universe.
