Unpainted oval tray made by Yoka Van Den Brink, 1994. Yoka painted objects using Hindeloopen craft techniques. These techniques date back to the 16th century, to the port of Hindeloopen, in Friesland in the North of Holland where sailors developed a decorative tradition of handpainting domestic items to add colour to the dark houses through winter. Motifs include flowers, scrolls, buds, birds and sometimes bible scenes and landscapes. This type of object would usually be painted in gouaches.
