About the artwork
Pleunie Buyink studied Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven and Fashion Design at
Artemis Rotterdam. Her love for fashion, interior design and materials is always visible in
her work.The artist frequently researches the possibility to create new materials and combining
of different techniques.
For her graduation project at the Design Academy, Buyink developed a new composition
material that she named Limber Gem. Limber Gem combines different layers and materials.
Because the artist personally manages the whole process, from the designs to the
actual production, it gives her the opportunity to make the objects in almost every size
In addition to the smaller works that mostly function as interior jewelry, Buying recently
started to make larger works. In both the smaller and monumental works, Buyink aspires
to capture the essence of ‘layers’. Each object is layered in a number of ways, not only in
the material of the work, but also layering of the colors and the way the object interacts.
Once the light touches the limber gems the interplay between the rugged crinkly background,
the ruff edges and the warm colors really starts. Limber gems are behaving as
chameleons playing with incoming light, reflection and color in every interior.
With Limber Gem, the artist creates artworks that also function as elegant interior jewelry.
