About Geert van der Vossen
Geert van der Vossen is a Dutch artist who began working with iron at the age of 14. During his school years, he learned vaious techniques for machining metal and eventually graduated as a mechanical engineer. When he moved to Sweden in 2013, he picked up the craft with iron again and today he has a smithy in Broddetorp in Skaraborg. Geert’s goal is to create unexpected, unusual three-dimensional shapes with the least possible environmental impact, which make people reflect, marvel and laugh.
The artwork Coronablommor will be shown in Stora Hamnkanalen from 28 May to 15 November 2021.
