Jantien Kahn

The delicate chisel work on each of Jantien Kahn's sculptures is painstakingly and meticulously finished by hand. She carefully works the surfaces of her sculptures, exposing the sinuous geological faults, veins and splits within the stone. She is able to project the stately qualities of the stone, connecting hardness with softness and liberating the hidden, tempting us to touch these unconventional and organic forms. Jantien's smallest pieces, to be found in our cabinets, distil her simple and meditative style into the palm of your hand.

Jantien works and lives alternately in Amsterdam and Brittany. Whilst studying Art Therapy, Jantien took sculpture classes with three Dutch stone sculptors. Since deciding to make sculpting her profession, she has continued to develop her skills and deepen her knowledge of design, through both apprenticeship and masterclasses, as well as everyday practice in her own studio. Her work can be found in private collections in both Holland and abroad.
