Vera Stassen


Vera Stassen completed her apprenticeship to become a goldsmith and afterwards studied

product design at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Krefeld and at the

Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland. Furthermore, she attended external courses at the

Düsseldorf Peter Behrens School of Arts, the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen and

the Cologne International School of Design. Since 2012 Vera Stassen has had a scholarship

from Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes.


She embarks on a researching quest, dealing with themes such as environment, material,

nature and human senses. Although, her on-going fascination with ceramic and glass dominates

her work, with her background as goldsmith and the studies in product design she deals with

various materials and ideas in scientific, artistic and practice-oriented way.
