Welcome to the website of José van den Tweel, born 1967


For some time now my work has a link with (old) industry. I’m attracted in the robustness of old factories, the clear shapes they have. Also the decay, rusty old kettles and pipes, half-collapsed walls have my interest.

Most of my pieces are covered with a sinter-engobe, which I wash away partly. By doing this, they get a weathered  appearance.

My inspiration comes from buildings in my surroundings, but am also always searching on the internet or on my holidays for interesting buildings. The world is my search area.
