St. Agathaplein in Delft

Since 25 februari 2010 you can see these porcelain lampposts in the St. Agathaplace in Delft. This town is the first Dutch town with this type of streetlightning.

Porcelain is handpainted by the Delft artist Wendy Steenks (affiliated with De Porceleyne Fles) and the Chinese artist Ling Yun. Adriaan Rees, an artis form Amsterdam came up with the idea to create porcelain tubes to cover the lampposts. Click here to see the tubes before they were places around the lampposts.
