Usually taking the form of animals, (specifically antelopes), Van der Vloed’s uses plastic bottles and crochets with recycled plastic bags or thick PVC wire to create texture and detail. Her artwork is exported internationally, as she contributes towards fair trade charities such as Aid to Artisans and Unesco Care. As a ceramic artist, Van der Vloed works with a collective of crafters around the world to gain inspiration.
