JAN MATTHESIUS & ANDRE VAN LOON
Jan Matthesius has long crafted most of Aldo Bakker’s silver and copper designs. Trained under Jan Matthesius, master silversmith Andre van Loon now runs the special collaborations and commissions of Matthesius studio. Van Loon is behind most of Bakker’s recent works of art made in precious metal. Widely recognized for his mastery, Matthesius is now focusing on his own designs and jewelry collection.
“I am always touched by the correctness of Aldo’s designs. One needs a second glance, but after a while, you start to comprehend the shape as a whole. All the details are just right. That’s when you understand why Aldo came up with this shape.” – Jan Matthesius
