Tine De Ruysser

Dr Tine De Ruysser studied Jewellery Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Antwerp and the Royal College of Art in London, where she became doctor in 2010.  Both the British Arts and Humanities Research Council and Design Flanders supported her doctoral research.

Since 2000 she has taken part in jewellery and textile exhibitions in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia and Korea.  She has won several international awards and is published worldwide. Tine is now working as a tutor at the department 'Object and Jewellery' of the University College PXL-MAD in Hasselt, is a practicing artist and has an interest in further developing research in the applied arts.

She makes work that has the folding of tessellating patterns at its core. The folding is used to create objects from a single sheet of flat material, giving it shape and flexibility. The material is a laminate she developed herself. It is made of a fabric core to which metal, wooden or plastic platelets are applied in a predefined pattern. In between the platelets the fabric is bare to allow the folding. She uses this material to make both wearable and decorative objects.
