I have a fascination for the relationship between colour, material and tactility. My design process in relation to materials is playful, eclectic and sensual. The Touchables invite tactile discovery and exploration in contrast to our increasingly polished digital world. I have created a surprising collection of material forms, encompassing visual and textural contrast. These appealing sculptures offer sensorial discovery, aiming to convey the power of colour,material and texture, to reawaken a more sensual relationship with objects, and satisfy our inherent desire for tactility.The Touchables I created for the Mutant Matter exhibition, presented by Dutch Invertuals co-curated with FranklinTill at Milan Design Week 2018. To explore our current and future relationship with materials and making. http://www.dutchinvertuals.nl/exhibitions/mutant-matter/
Porn for the Soul
Designed to tease and tempt, ‘Porn for the Soul’ is a series of erotic sculptures by Fleur Hulleman. It’s all about enhancing sensual consciousness. The feminine organic forms in delicate ceramics are an open invitation to unleash sexual fantasies. It’s fantastic that now a days porn gives a fast answer to our sexual longings. ‘Porn for the Soul’ invites you to take time to discover what these sculptures do to you. More than seduce the eye, they are also arousing to touch, with rigid or soft hairs sticking out to tickle undiscovered spots. Each object has its own distinct character and suggestive name, from Vulvane to Cliticious and Tittylate. Together with the accompanying book of images and movie, they can provide an inspiration for the sex toy industry.
VulvaneSlowly a finger slides in the fluffy slit.Curves on both sides of the fingertip.The symmetry implies perfection.A flat hand on the gleaming thighs.Sticky and soft.Hairy and smooth.VulvaanLangzaam glijdt een vinger door de donzige gleuf. Rondingen aan beide kanten van het vingertopje. De symmetrie suggereert naar perfectie. Een vlakke hand tegen de glimmende dijen. Plakkerig en zacht. Behaard en glad.
TittylateA static striptease.Hidden hints of fluffiness.An attraction between spectator and performer.Gently this glory reveals itself.The hairy rounded bulge is unveiled.Luscious for the eye.
TietelaarEen stilstaande striptease. Verborgen hints van zachtheden. Een aantrekkingskracht tussen kijker en performer. Langzaam bied deze pracht zich open en blood aan. De grote harige heuvel is onthuld. Smullend voor het oog.
CliticiousFragile seducer.A pleasing curve.Discover trough your caress. In your lapUnder your bumAround your hipsAlong your neckOver your face.Wandering around inquisitively.Close to the body.A wave of comfort.BeffilegeFragiele verleider. Een aangename welving. Strelend ontdekken. In je schootOnder je billenRondom je heupenLangs je nekOver je gezicht. Ronddwalend onderzoekend. Dicht bij je lichaam. Een golf van comfort.
NippletwisticA big full shape.Lustrous as a deserved trophy in the shine of the light.Fulfills the desire of your eyes.Flaunting voluptuous.Pinch it quietly.Puffy from the outside.Fragile on the inside.Handle it with care orGo at it hard.NippeltwistandigEen grote blote volle vorm. Glimmend als een verdiende trofee in de glans van het licht. Vervult het verlangen van je ogen. Voluptueus pronkend aanwezig.Absoluut niet vals plat. Stiekem even knijpen. Zacht van buiten, Fragiel van binnen. Teder handelen of hard aanpakken.
SpankynistSwiftly the ‘Spankynist’ taps a bodypart.An unexpected light tickling from the hairy top.Satisfied bobbing around after the act.Calmly it comes to a halt In a curved uptight position Against gravity.SwaffelistVliegensvlug tikt de Swaffelist een lichaamsdeel aan. Een lichte onverwachte kriebel van de zachte top. Voldaan na-deinend van de daad. Langzaam komt het tot stilstand rechtopstaand In een boog Tegen de zwaartekracht in.
The body as an empty canvas, Covered by drawingsI draw my own clothing, using sealant as my pencil on elastic 'nude' textiles. The hand drawn graphics appear as decoration and as body covering. The weight of the sealant guides the silhouette. A certain clumsiness becomes elegant because of the heaviness. A wearable material and shape suggestion, shown in a series of images. An additional material book shows the material research and developments. A glorification for expression.
Sock ArchiveThis archive shows a collection of sock experiments
From underdog to uppersock‘When a trouser is lifted, like stage curtains; the sock is revealed. This moment should be spectacular, as the sock is experiencing a moment of fame. I’m aimingfor that the sock needs to act as an indepented and surprising piece of clothing. As well when the sock traditionally for-fills a function as a buffer in-between shoe and foot. Being timid and shy. The Uppersock collection is creating from a humble sock a voluptuous and surprising sihouette which cement the sock as an independent and surprising piece of clothing and a celebration for the eye.’
As a designer/artist I work from a strong aesthetic desire and an experience as primary function.
My aim is to create intriguing projects to offer sensorial discovery, aiming to convey the power of colour, material and texture to reawaken a more sensual relationship with objects, and satisfy our inherent desire for tactility. I have a fascination for the relationship between color, material and tactility and what experience this may induce; what effect it has on the surrounding space and spectators.Researching and developing materials and experimenting with form and color bring me to new products and functions. My design process in relation to materials is playful, eclectic and sensual. The material often unravels the sensory and emotional individual experience of touch.
I like to play with ordinary every day occurrences that people do not seem to see, placing this on a pedestal for others to firstname.lastname@example.org
