About the artwork

J.C. Stoffels (1878-1952) designed the clock in a constructive style, inspired by the architect H.P. Berlage and the designer Jan Eisenloeffel. Stoffels had more interest also designed tea services and lamps, executed by the company Onder den Sint Maarten, which was established in the small city of Zaltbommel, but later moved to Haarlem.

About the Artist

Johannes Cornelis Stoffels was a graphic designer, decorative arts craftsman, jewelry designer and furniture designer. From 1892-1896 he studied to become a silversmith at the Dagtekenschool voor Kunstambachten in Amsterdam. In 1895 he also became a qualified moulder. His decorative objects greatly contributed to the Dutch Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. Unfortunately, he never signed his work which is why his name is not as well known to us as some of his contemporaries such as H.P. Berlage, Jan Eisenloeffel and Chris van der Hoef.
