Thalen & Thalen

Collect 2019 exhibitor

Silver in the 21st century… this describes the Thalen & Thalen approach, enjoying the tactile qualities of fine silver 999/000 presented in the timeless creations by Rob & Jaap Thalen. Recently the Thalen pieces were qualified by Merrill Lynch as well as the US Trust to be investment-grade silver. This is a wonderful accolade, but primarily the artwork by Thalen & Thalen is meant to be enjoyed, lived with.

Little hand-held works that can be carried around and used, and large creations that challenge the limits of what it is possible to make. Silver in its purest form is the material that inspires the Thalens to go further. Recently a collaboration started with the Dutch sculptor Xander Spronken, where silver meets iron. Their latest project under construction is a 200-kilo reclining sculpture in fine silver… to be continued.
