Berthe's life story is incredibly moving. She was born in Utrecht in the Netherlands. She married a judge named Dirk Hoola van Nooten who secured a position in the Dutch colony of Suriname SurahNAM in South America. The couple frequently traveled between Jakarta and Suriname. Along the way, Berthe collected and drew plant specimens which she would send back home to the botanical gardens in the Netherlands. By the mid-1840's the couple moved to New Orleans to establish a Protestant school for girls on behalf of the Episcopal Church. But in the summer of 1847, New Orleans was ravaged by an epidemic of yellow fever that wiped out ten percent of the population. After the yellow fever claimed Dirk's life, Berthe was left to fend for herself and her five children at the age of thirty. She attempted to open another school in Galveston but was unable to pay her creditors. Eventually, Berthe joined her brother on a trip to Java. There she opened another school, but she also had a patron in Sophie Mathilde, the wife of William II (Netherlands). The result was her masterpiece - a collection of forty plates of her botanical art - called Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java or Selected Flowers, Fruits and Foliage from the Island of Java (1863-64). Berthe's work was dramatic, featuring rich colors and bold illustrations. Most Europeans had never seen such magnificent plants. In the introduction, aware of her station as a woman and penniless widow during the Victorian age, Berthe apologized for her daring attempt at creating such work, writing, You may not, like myself, have tasted the bitterness of exile… you may not, like myself, have experienced, even in the springtime of life, the sorrowful separation from home and country – the absence of the friendly greeting, on a foreign shore… Death may not have snatched away from you, the arm which was your sole support… bereavement may not have entered your dwelling, like mine, as with one sudden stroke to tear away the veil of sweet illusions, which, as yet, had hidden from your eyes the stern realities of life – to place you, with a lacerated heart, a shrinking spirit, and a feeble and suffering body, before an unpitying necessity, which presents no other alternative than labour. In 1892, Berthe died impoverished on the island of Jakarta. She was 77.   October 12, 1844 Birth of George Washington Cable, American writer, and critic. A son of New Orleans, he has been called the first modern southern writer. Despite being a German Protestant, instead of French Catholic, George understood Creole culture and is most remembered for his early fiction about his hometown, including Old Creole Days (1879), The Grandissimes "Gran-DE-seem" (1880), and Madame Delphine "Delphine" (1881). Today the George Washington Cable House is open to visitors. The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1962. Located at 1313 8th Street, in the Garden District of New Orleans, the home features gardens that George designed. In fact, The neighborhood is known for outstanding restaurants and beautiful gardens. The beauty of New Orleans inspired George, and he was especially fond of nature and gardens. In The Taxidermist, his story begins with these words, One day a hummingbird got caught in a cobweb in our greenhouse. It had no real need to seek that damp, artificial heat. We were in the very heart of that Creole summertime when bird-notes are many as the sunbeams. The flowers were in such multitude they seemed to follow one about, offering their honeys and perfumes and begging to be gathered. Our little boy saw the embodied joy fall, a joy no longer, seized it and, clasping it too tightly, brought it to me dead. He cried so over the loss that I promised to have the body stuffed. This is how I came to know Manouvrier “Man-vree-yay,” the Taxidermist in St. Peter Street. In My Own Acre, he wrote, A garden, we say, should never compel us to go back the way we came; but in truth, a garden should never compel us to do anything. Its don'ts should be laid solely on itself.  “Private grounds, no crossing”–take that away, please, wherever you can, and plant your margins so that there can be no crossing. Wire nettings hidden by shrubberies from all but the shameless trespasser you will find far more effective, more promotive to beauty, and more courteous. “Don't” make your garden a garden of don'ts. For no garden is quite a garden until it is “Joyous Gard.” Let not yours or mine be a garden for display. Then our rhododendrons and like splendors will not be at the front gate, and our grounds be less and less worth seeing the farther into them we go. Nor let yours or mine be a garden of pride.  And let us not have a garden of tiring care or a user up of precious time.  Neither let us have an old-trousers, sun-bonnet, black fingernails garden–especially if you are a woman. Finally, in The American Garden, he wrote, One of the happiest things about gardening is that when it is bad, you can always–you and time–you and year after next–make it good. It is very easy to think of the plants, beds, and paths of a garden as things which, being once placed, must stay where they are; but it is shortsighted, and it is fatal to effective gardening. We should look upon the arrangement of things in our garden very much as a housekeeper looks on the arrangement of the furniture in her house. Except buildings, pavements, and great trees–and not always excepting the trees–we should regard nothing in it as permanent architecture but only as furnishment and decoration. At favorable moments you will make whatever rearrangement may seem to you good.   October 12, 1895    Death of Cecil Frances Alexander, Anglo-Irish hymn writer, and poet. She wrote over 400 hymns. In addition to There Is a Green Hill Far Away and the Christmas carol Once in Royal David's City, she wrote All Things Bright and Beautiful. Here are the garden and nature-related verses, along with the refrain at the end. Each little flower that opens, Each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colours, He made their tiny wings. The cold wind in the winter, The pleasant summer sun, The ripe fruits in the garden, He made them every one; The tall trees in the greenwood, The meadows for our play, The rushes by the water, To gather every day; All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.   Unearthed Words The name of the zoo was the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park. As I crossed the parking area, I prepared myself for disappointment. I am going to see a collection of snakes, lizards, and miserable creatures in jars, feel terribly sorry for them and leave. It was October 1991. I was Terri Raines, a twenty-seven-year-old Oregon girl in Australia on an unlikely quest to find homes for rescued American cougars. A reptile park wasn't going to be interested in a big cat. I headed through the pleasant spring heat toward the park, thinking pessimistic thoughts. This is going to be a big waste of time. But the prospect of seeing new species of wildlife drew me in. I walked through the modest entrance with some friends, only to be shocked at what I found on the other side: the most beautiful, immaculately kept gardens I had ever encountered. Peacocks strutted around, kangaroos and wallabies roamed freely, and palm trees lined all the walkways. It was like a little piece of Eden. ― Terri Irwin, Steve & Me   Grow That Garden Library Carving Out a Living on the Land by Emmet Van Driesche ("DRY-sh") This book came out in 2019, and the subtitle is lessons in resourcefulness and craft from an unusual Christmas tree farm. Well, I have to confess that I'm a huge fan of Emmett's YouTube channel. He does everything that he's talking about in this book - Even carving his own spoons. But what I especially love about this book is learning about what it's like to be a Christmas tree farmer. I find this fascinating.  (And to me, this book is an excellent option for a Christmas gift. So keep that in mind as well.) Now what Emmett is writing about is simplicity - living a life that's in tune with nature,   A life that is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and the daily grind. Emmett is busy,  but he has plenty of time to do the things that matter - Even pursuing his favorite pastime of spoon carving. Now I have to confess that I discovered a very pleasant surprise when I started reading Emmett's book; he's an excellent writer. And I wanted to give you a little taste for his writing, a little sample.  Just by reading what he wrote in the introduction to his book. He wrote, The air is cold enough for my breath to show.  But I'm about to break a sweat.  I'm harvesting balsam branches, grabbing each with one hand and cutting them with the red clippers in the other. ...I work fast and don't stop until my arm is completely stacked with branches and sticking straight out, and I look like a kid with too many sweaters on under his jacket.  Pivoting on my heel.  I stride back to my central pile of balsam boughs and dump the armload on top, eyeballing it to gauge how much the pile weighs.  I decide I need more and head off in another direction into the grove.   The balsam fir grows from big wild stumps and thickets that can stretch 20 feet around, the trees crowded so closely together, in no apparent order or pattern, that their branches interlock. Instead of single trees, each stump has up to three small trees of different ages growing off of it. They are pruned as Christmas trees, and I am a Christmas tree farmer.   Isn't that fascinating? Well, this book is 288 pages of self-reliance and the Christmas spirit. You can get a copy of Carving Out a Living on the Land by Emmet Van Driesche and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $13.   Today's Botanic Spark Reviving the little botanic spark in your heart October 12, 1907 On this day, a 41-year-old Beatrix Potter wrote to Millie Warne, the sister of her publisher, friend, and former fiance Norman Warne (who died two years earlier - a month after their engagement - at the age of 37). Beatrix wore Norman's ring on the ring finger of her right hand until she died three days before Christmas in 1943 at the age of 77. My news is all gardening at present and supplies. I went to see an old lady at Windermere and impudently took a large basket and trowel with me. She had the most untidy garden I ever saw. I got nice things in handfuls without any shame, amongst others a bundle of lavender slips ...and another bunch of violet suckers. Incidentally, twenty years earlier on this day, in 1887, that a 21-year-old Beatrix drew her first fungus, the Verdigris Toadstool "Vir-dah-greez" (Stropharia aeruginosa).   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener. And remember: "For a happy, healthy life, garden every day."

Germany's centre-left SPD party has claimed victory in the federal election. Parties will now try to form a coalition government, and the BBC's Victoria Craig in Frankfurt assesses what the outcome of the vote means for the German economy. Also in the programme, our workplace commentator Peter Morgan asks whether it's time for greater transparency in the workplace about how much money people are paid. Plus, it's reported that the British government is considering bringing troops in to drive fuel tankers to restock the country's petrol stations, following panic buying amidst a lorry driver shortage which led to many retailers selling out. Ministers have also launched an emergency visa scheme, to allow foreign lorry drivers to come to the UK for three months. Edwin Atema of the Federation of Dutch Trade Unions in Utrecht tells us whether many European drivers are likely to take up such an offer.

Conventional wisdom about running is passed down like folklore (and sometimes contradicts itself): the right kind of shoe prevents injury—or running barefoot, like our prehistoric ancestors, is best; eat a high-fat diet—and also carbo load before a race; running cures depression—but it might be addictive; running can save your life—although it can also destroy your knee cartilage. Often it's hard to know what to believe. In Running Smart: How Science Can Improve Your Endurance and Performance (MIT Press, 2021), Mariska van Sprundel, a science journalist and recreational runner who has had her fair share of injuries, sets out to explore the science behind such claims. In her quest, van Sprundel reviews the latest developments in sports science, consults with a variety of experts, and visits a sports lab to have her running technique analyzed. She learns, among other things, that according to evolutionary biology, humans are perfectly adapted to running long distances (even if our hunter-gatherer forebears suffered plenty of injuries); that running sets off a shockwave that spreads from foot to head, which may or may not be absorbed by cushioned shoes; and that a good sports bra controls the ping pong–like movements of a female runner's breasts. She explains how the body burns fuel, the best foods to eat before and after running, and what might cause “runner's high.” More than fifty million Americans are runners (and a slight majority of them are women). This engaging and enlightening book will help both novice and seasoned runners run their smartest. Mariska van Sprundel is a freelance science journalist who has written for Runner's World and other publications. The creator of The Rational Runner, a blog about science and running, she is a running instructor for recreational runners at a Utrecht athletics club.

In her quest, van Sprundel reviews the latest developments in sports science, consults with a variety of experts, and visits a sports lab to have her running technique analyzed. She learns, among other things, that according to evolutionary biology, humans are perfectly adapted to running long distances (even if our hunter-gatherer forebears suffered plenty of injuries); that running sets off a shockwave that spreads from foot to head, which may or may not be absorbed by cushioned shoes; and that a good sports bra controls the ping pong–like movements of a female runner's breasts. She explains how the body burns fuel, the best foods to eat before and after running, and what might cause “runner's high.” More than fifty million Americans are runners (and a slight majority of them are women). This engaging and enlightening book will help both novice and seasoned runners run their smartest. Mariska van Sprundel is a freelance science journalist who has written for Runner's World and other publications. The creator of The Rational Runner, a blog about science and running, she is a running instructor for recreational runners at a Utrecht athletics club.

Conventional wisdom about running is passed down like folklore (and sometimes contradicts itself): the right kind of shoe prevents injury—or running barefoot, like our prehistoric ancestors, is best; eat a high-fat diet—and also carbo load before a race; running cures depression—but it might be addictive; running can save your life—although it can also destroy your knee cartilage. Often it's hard to know what to believe.

After spending all summer in the Netherlands, I have returned to our home in Palestine. It was a wonderful summer full of family, friends, biking, walking, fun activities for the kids, swimming, cinema and theater. But also it was full of goodbyes and nostalgia, because I had to give up the house I was still renting in the Netherlands in my hometown Utrecht. This summer I finally officially emigrated to Palestine and I unregistered from the Municipality of Utrecht. Many people have asked me how I feel about this, why I decided to take this step and why I am in Palestine. Some of the parents of the children of my daughter's class have told me they would jump to move out of Palestine and live in the Netherlands. They could not understand WHY I decided to come and live in Palestine. So for this first episode of a new season of Stories from Palestine podcast, I have recorded my thoughts and my personal experiences, while I was sitting under our massive 80 years old olive tree, contemplating about my life.It is the first episode I recorded without a script.

In deze aflevering praten de geeks met hun gasten Nicolaas Veul en Lieven Heeremans over The Truman Show (1998) en over Nicolaas' project Super Stream Me (2015) waarin hij en Tim den Besten zichzelf 24 uur per dag streamden. Wat doet dat met je? Wat is privacy eigenlijk? We hebben het over The Truman Show-waan en over de verschillen met sociale media en vloggen. Welke verantwoordelijkheid hebben kijkers ? De terugblik: Lieven speelde met heel veel plezier Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order op zijn gloednieuwe Playstation. Daarnaast keek hij fout maar lekker naar Clarkson's Farm (Amazon Prime). Nicolaas genoot tijdens het eten van seizoen 6 van RuPaul's All Stars (Netflix). Nine Perfect Strangers (Prime) met Nicole Kidman vond hij niet perfect, maar het pakt je wel. Hij raadt iedereen de podcast Beyond The Gender Binary van Alok Vaid-Menon aan. Linda keek naar Never Have I Ever (Netflix) een highschoolserie zoals ze ze fijn vindt, maar dan moeiteloos intersectioneel. The Chair (Netflix) met Sandra Oh is een absolute aanrader voor iedereen die wel eens op een geesteswetenschappelijke opleiding heeft rondgelopen. Het is niche, maar voor wie die wereld kent is het onwijs grappig herkenbaar. Thom las The Three-Body Problem, de Chinese sciencefiction die al eerder in deze podcast genoemd is. Harde wetenschap, maar helaas is de auteur het plot vergeten. Alleen aan te raden als je van de wetenschappelijke kant houdt. Suicide Squad vond hij een perfecte film om brak te kijken. De vooruitblik: Nicolaas kijkt uit naar de première van zijn nieuwe documentairereeks 100 dagen in je hoofd, vanaf 21 oktober op NPO3. Hij heeft ook zin in het derde seizoen van Succession (HBO). Linda vond het laatste seizoen van Downton Abbey heel slecht en heeft daarom zin de gehele serie opnieuw te kijken. Daarnaast ziet ze uit naar een nieuw seizoen van Sex Education (Netflix, vanaf 17 september), met de waarschuwing dat niet alle informatie feitelijk juist is. Thom heeft zin in Dune – waar we de volgende aflevering over gaan praten – en in het Podcastfestival, dat van 23 tot en met 26 september plaatsvindt in achtereenvolgens Groningen, Amsterdam, Nijmegen en Utrecht. Lieven is toch wel benieuwd naar The Many Saints of Newark, de prequelfilm van The Sopranos en de terugkeer van Abba als hologrammen.

Another week and another Hurricane/Tropical Storm! What the hell is going on? Luckily, we still have drag race and two fabulous guests. Atlanta based award-winning photographer Toby of Just Toby served us amazing insider tea about Nicole Paige Brooks' Boots, how Mariah Paris Balenziaga and Coco Montrose birthed his Photography career, and Wussy Mag. We also learned about so cute queer ATL Spots: Whoops (Gay Sports Bar), Midtown Moon, and The Hideaway. From across the pond, we were also joined by drag sisters and real-life couple Amy Astoria and Victoria Vyper who hail from Utrecht in Holland. Would believe that Holland is allowing sports gatherings but still won't let people gather in bars? Literal discrimination against nightlife. Luckily we learned about so cool queer parties: Rubber and Lapin.  Then we dove deep into the Holland much-improved version of a Rusical!  All Stars 6:  If you get eliminated should you still win All Stars?  Why we have no idea when All Stars was ending. Do we actually have time to watch all this Drag Content? How crazy is it that Lawrence Chaney's win is for less than a year?  Why Bimini is still a winner. Who had the best monologue?  How amazing was Kylie Sonique Love's monologue. Eureka has brought it home to the big girls! Did Akiera do a BenDeLaCreme?  Drag Race Holland: Does Vivaldi know what trees are? Why Drag queens need to be involved with Politics.  Should Vanessa really have been in the bottom?  Tabitha is the moment! We are Tina Burner Stans! Is the translation is better?  About our guests: Amy Astoria and Victoria Vyper are Dutch drag queens living in the city of Utrecht. They are a couple in 'real' life and since 6 years they are also sisters in drag. Since then, they have evolved their drag and are now well known queens in the Dutch scene. Their main goal is to entertain the crowd, but also to contribute to the societal debate with regard to LGBTQ+ issues is important for them. Two years ago, Amy and Victoria started AbsolutelyDrag, an entertainment concept also aiming to give opportunities to new drag queens and kings. Amy and Victoria do not only envision their looks, but also create the outfits from scratch. Sometimes it feels like an additional full time job: Amy is a certified auditor at the largest warehouse in the country and Victoria is a researcher and program manager at a university. Currently they are working on several new concepts and even their own theater show. Socials: Toby is an Atlanta based award winning photographer, who has traveled the world photographing queens since 2014 when he started Just Toby.  Toby is an advocate to the LGBTQIA community, event producer and on the Board of Directors of Atlanta Pride Committee.   FOLLOW AMY ASTORIA AND VICTORIA VYPERInstagram: Amy_Astoria  Victoria_Vyper Absolutely Drag Website  FOLLOW JUST TOBYInstagram: JustTobyMe Twitter: JustTobyMe  Facebook: JustTobyMe   JustToby Website Just Toby Featured in The Advocate FOLLOW NICKInstagram: neprobst and grow_withnickTwitter: neprobst  FOLLOW MIJONInstagram:majorzu FOLLOW THE HUNTYSInstagram: whisperinghuntysFacebook: whisperinghuntysTiktok: whisperinghuntysTwitter: huntywhisperingWhispering Huntys Website  Whispering Huntys is an Apocalypse Podcast Network Podcast. Sign up to our Listserv: http://eepurl.com/hfnySr

"Heb in Slotsnaam een beetje geduld". Het was de titel van een eerdere aflevering na de potjes tegen Drita. Het geduld werd rijkelijk beloond met swingend, dominant voetbal tegen - oké - niet de allergrootste voetbalreuzen. Maar overtuigend en energiek was het wel. Het geduld wordt nu voor het eerst een heel klein beetje op de proef gesteld, met de eerste twee nederlagen in een week tijd. Vooropgesteld: dit zou een keer gebeuren, en zondag was Utrecht simpelweg energieker, fanatieker en beter. Met een welverdiende interlandbreak is het tijd om een kleine tussenbalans op te maken. En dan zijn de laatste uren van deze transferwindow extra spannend. Wat moet er bij, wat kán er überhaupt nog en lukt het Arnesen om - met name voorin - nog iets toe te voegen?

Remarkable stories of Jewish women through the objects of their lives. The Art of the Jew­ish Fam­i­ly: A His­to­ry of Women in Ear­ly New York in Five Objects (Bard Grad­u­ate Cen­ter), winner of The National Jewish Book Award in three dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories: the Ger­rard and Ella Berman Memo­r­i­al Award for His­to­ry, the Amer­i­can Jew­ish Stud­ies Cel­e­brate 350 Award, and the Women Stud­ies Bar­bara Dobkin Award. In The Art of the Jewish Family, Laura Arnold Leibman examines five objects owned by a diverse group of Jewish women who all lived in New York in the years between 1750 and 1850: a letter from impoverished Hannah Louzada seeking assistance; a set of silver cups owned by Reyna Levy Moses; an ivory miniature owned by Sarah Brandon Moses, who was born enslaved and became one of the wealthiest Jewish women in New York; a book created by Sarah Ann Hays Mordecai; and a family silhouette owned by Rebbetzin Jane Symons Isaacs. These objects offer intimate and tangible views into the lives of Jewish American women from a range of statuses, beliefs, and lifestyles—both rich and poor, Sephardi and Ashkenazi, slaves and slaveowners. Each chapter creates a biography of a single woman through an object, offering a new methodology that looks past texts alone to material culture in order to further understand early Jewish American women's lives and restore their agency as creators of Jewish identity. While much of the available history was written by men, the objects that Leibman studies were made for and by Jewish women. Speaking to American Jewish life, women's studies, and American history, The Art of the Jewish Family sheds new light on the lives and values of these women, while also revealing the social and religious structures that led to Jewish women being erased from historical archives. Laura Arnold Leibman is a Professor of English and Humanities at Reed College in Portland, Oregon (USA) and the author of The Art of the Jewish Family: A History of Women in Early New York in Five Objects (Bard Graduate Center, 2020) which won three National Jewish Book Awards. Her earlier book Messianism, Secrecy and Mysticism: A New Interpretation of Early American Jewish Life (2012) won a Jordan Schnitzer Book Award and a National Jewish Book Award. Her work focuses on religion and the daily lives of women and children in early America and uses everyday objects to help bring their stories back to life. She has been a visiting fellow at Oxford University, a Fulbright scholar at the University of Utrecht, the University of Panama, and the Leon Levy Foundation Professor of Jewish Material Culture at Bard Graduate Center. Her forthcoming Once We Were Slaves (Oxford UP, 2021) is about an early multiracial Jewish family who began their lives enslaved in the Caribbean and became some of the wealthiest Jews in New York.

Santa Teodosia era natural de Tiro, consagró a Dios su virginidad. Fue denunciada por ser cristiana y arrestada. Querían persuadirla de que sacrificase a los dioses, como se negó, se abalanzaron sobre ella infringiéndole un cruel martirio descarnándole el costado y el pecho, hasta dejar al descubierto los huesos y entrañas. Alcanzó la corona del martirio, hacia el año 307. San Federico descendía de una de las familias más nobles de los frisones. Había sido educado por los eclesiásticos de Utrecht y desde su juventud demostró un gran amor a la penitencia y vida de oración. Ordenado sacerdote fue encargado de preparar a los catecúmenos, cosa que hizo con ardiente celo. Al mismo tiempo se entregaba a grandes austeridades y ahorraba cuanto podía para entregarlo a los pobres. Murió hacia el año 833.

See pictures and read more on materiallyspeaking.comGuus Jooss lives in Holland but comes to Pietrasanta in Italy for several months a year to work in marble.Guus used to work as a museum teacher and researcher in the Netherlands when he wasn't creating his own art. Before that, he went to an art academy in Utrecht for a year, but mostly learnt about sculpture through doing the work himself. He also did some teaching and found himself describing for his students skills that he didn't realise he'd learnt.When working in marble he considers himself rather old-fashioned as his heroes are artists of earlier generations: Henry Moore, Constantin Brâncuși, Alberto Viani, Isamu Noguchi and Hans Arp, all of whom had a classical, figurative, training but then moved on to pure form. He likes the honesty of one form made in one material.With an affinity to antiquity, Guus makes collages that reference his love of history. Old civilizations that are lost are recreated by him in images which look a little like tapestries or Persian rugs. He's fascinated by the regularity of geometric patterns that Islamic artists made in the sixth and seventh centuries. He talks us through his process and the way he expresses the layers of history.Guus tells how Homo Ludens, a book by Dutch historian and cultural theorist Johan Huizinga, explains the importance of play in society. Like Huizinga, Guus believes that adult creativity should be approached with the same urgency that a child approaches play, that is to say, as a matter of life and death.A keen swimmer, Guus found that open water swimming strengthened his lungs after what may, or may not have been, a dose of Covid. At the beginning of lockdown he enjoyed the chance to focus on work, but the need for a hug finally forced him to admit that isolation was actually a difficult experience.Since this episode was recorded in September 2020, we've had another winter of lockdown. Like others who moved out of towns and cities during the pandemic, Guus relocated from Utrecht to the countryside where he has fresher air and more studio space.guusjooss.nl

What you'll learn in this episode: Why Marie-José developed the Marzee Graduate Prize to help young jewelry artists How she secured the historic building her gallery and apartment are located in Who Marie-José's favorite artists are, such as Dorothea Prühl Why the term “art jewelry” is redundant How the pandemic inspired Marie-José to look closer to home for exhibition ideas About Marie-José van den Hout Born in Roermond in the Netherlands, Marie-José van den Hout grew up in a family of three generations of ecclesiastical gold- and silversmiths. It was in the workshop of her grandfather, a renowned craftsman who specialized in repoussé and chasing, that her passion for gold grew and flourished. Alongside two of her brothers, Marie-José worked in her father's studio before studying gold- and silversmithing and then fine art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. She established Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen in 1979 and was honored with the title of Officer of the Order of Oranje-Nassau at the gallery's 40th anniversary celebrations in June 2019.

The gallery was founded in 1979 by Marie-José van den Hout, who has spent her lifetime immersed in jewelry, goldsmithing, and art. She joined the podcast to talk about the exhibitions she's working on now, why she dedicates so much time to helping art and jewelry students, and how an exhibition of combs put Galerie Marzee on the map. Read the episode transcript below.  Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. Today, my guest is Marie-José van den Hout, founder and owner of Galerie Marzee, the world's largest art jewelry gallery. The gallery is located in the Netherlands. Marie is a highly regarded leader in the field of art jewelry and has an interesting story, which we'll hear about today. Marie-José, welcome to the podcast. Marie: Thank you. Sharon: Tell us about your jewelry journey. You studied metalsmithing. When did you start liking art jewelry or jewelry? Marie: I started at eight, I think. Well, my journey started when I was four or five years old. My great-grandfather, although I never knew him, and my grandfather and my father were gold and silversmiths, but they didn't make jewelry; they made objects for Roman Catholic churches. I grew up with all these objects, which now are exported from Europe to America because there are too many and museums can't have them anymore. Anyway, when I was four years old, my father made a ring for me, and I was very proud of that ring. I was not interested in jewelry. He sometimes made rings for friends or for my mother, but he made a ring for me when I was a child and I took it. I was allowed, against his wishes to be honest, to take it to kindergarten. In the class, I very proudly showed this ring. At the time, those classes were huge, 40, 50 children, so it went around the class and it never came back to me, the ring. I was very shy; I didn't dare say anything to the teacher, so I went home without a ring. Many years later, I had an exhibition with Manuel Vilhena. He's a Portuguese jeweler. He had his exhibition and he made a ring from a string, just a simple string, and he said, “This is your ring. I know why you started the jewelry gallery; because you're still looking for your ring.” I found this such a beautiful story.  So, my journey started when I was four, but to be honest, it didn't really, because I was not interested in jewelry at all, not a bit. I always used to like drawing and painting. In those times, you learned to do those crafts at home, and the best teachers are your parents. At the academy where I went in Maastricht, they once asked my father—they wanted him to be a teacher at the academy, and he said, “No, no, no, no, I'm not interested.” But then we, my two brothers and me, went to the academy. We had to, because you were not allowed to work as a gold and silversmith and make pieces when you didn't have the—what do you call this? The mark you have.  Sharon: The hallmark? Marie: Yes, you had to go to the academy to get this hallmark. We did go there every day, the three of us by car. It was two hours' drive from our home, but in the end, it turned out I was not that interested, so I changed direction and went to painting and sculpture. Sharon, there is something I'm not that proud of. I met a man—I was 20, 21—my first boyfriend, who I thought was such a fantastic artist and painter that I stopped doing that altogether and I returned to gold and silversmithing. In the end, we worked at home designing, doing all the crafts.  As a child, I loved to go to my grandfather. He was very well-known for making those figures in gold and silver, and he was invited all over the world, all over Europe to restore church treasures. Although we are Dutch, my father was born in Cologne, because my grandfather at the time worked in Cologne restoring the treasury of the Dome of Cologne. My aunt was born in Brussels in Belgium, where my grandfather worked for the Dome of Brussels, and so on. He worked in Paris. At the same time, what he did—I loved my grandfather—after his work, he was always sitting in museums. You know those people who are sitting there and copying famous paintings? I once went to Paris to a museum, and I saw a painting and thought, “No, this can't be. My grandfather did this.” It turned out it was a famous painting by Monet. So, my life, my youth, was all in art, in gold, painting and silversmithing. But in the end, I didn't do all those things because I married, and within a year I had three children because I have twins. Sharon: Not much time between. Marie: Not that much. Sharon: With everything else, yeah. Marie: In the meantime, my father had died, and my two brothers didn't make those church things anymore. There was not much interest in those at the time, so they turned to jewelry. Both made jewelry, but my younger brother—I liked him very much; we had a very good relationship—he asked me, “I think you could be a very good shopkeeper and I would like to start a shop in Roermond.” He lived in  Roermond, which is 100 kilometers south of Nijmegen, and he had several shops already in Holland. I said, “O.K., I'll do this. It's possible do this while having children.” So, I did this for some time. It was modern jewelry, but not the kind I was interested in.  At the time, I visited another gallery, and I have to confess I was much more interested in the sort of art jewelry there. So I changed my policy; I went everywhere to look at this sort of jewelry. In the end, my brother was not so happy with my change of thought, and he said, “I don't want you to have my jewelry anymore,” which, Sharon, was a shame, because it was good jewelry. It sold very well. It was mostly gold and diamonds, but in a modern way. So, suddenly I could hardly survive, because the sort of jewelry we are dealing with now is very hard to sell. Sharon: I'm sorry—did you say very hard to sell? Marie: Very hard to sell, yes. It's really difficult. Anyway, I worked very hard, 12 hours a day. I was always working. My children were complaining. They said to me—I have three children—and they said, “Mom, you hear me, but you're not listening.” Now, they're proud of me, and two of them, when I stop, will carry on with the gallery. This is more or less the beginning of this journey. In the very beginning, the work I showed looked like what Galerie Ra showed. In the end it was completely different, because I traveled through Europe, traveled to academies, traveled to artists and so on, and I had my complete own style. It's what I'm doing now. Sharon: So just in case people don't about Galerie Ra, can you tell us a little bit about that? Marie: Galerie Ra in Amsterdam was a small gallery funded by Paul Derrez and Louis Martin, two of them. Later on Paul carried on on his own, and last year, after I think 40 years, he stopped with his gallery. He had to rent a shop in Amsterdam, and once every five years you have to have a new contract, and he thought, “This is too long for me. In the meantime, I can't stop because I still have to pay the rent.” So, he stopped, and last week on Koningsdag, King's Day, he got a medal from the king. He is an officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau; that is how our kingdom is called. I had this honor two years ago with the 40th anniversary of the gallery. In 2019, I also got this order. You can compare it with OBE in Britain. Sharon: Wow!  Marie: It is sort of like that. It's a huge medal. If people would have asked me, “Would you be interested in having anything like this?” I would say, “What nonsense. No, please, no,” but at the anniversary in 2019— Sharon: The 48th anniversary. Marie: I was so surprised and I was so proud. Sharon: That's quite an honor, wow! Marie: It was really nice. They said, “We were so frightened you would say”—I told you I can be quite undiplomatic—“Oh, what a horrible medal,” because it's not a very nice design. It's old, of course, but I didn't say it. I was very honored. All of this was based on the fact that I do so much for young artists. Sharon: You do. Marie: With the annual graduate show. Sharon: Tell us about the annual graduate show. It's so well-known.  Marie: I started this 30 years ago. I'm now in this beautiful building. It's a huge building overlooking the River Waal, and it has four stories. At the time, I was in a smaller building, not that small really, but I wanted to do something completely different. I said, “I'd like to work with young people and see if I can guide them or travel with them in their development.” I started making exhibitions that were quite small. I had an academy in Amsterdam. I had Maastricht and Utrecht, and I think Holzheim in Germany. It was quite small, but it in end, it developed. Now, it's 740, 750 schools from all over the world. Mostly there are between 17 and 19 participants, and all the floors of the gallery are full of young graduate work.  What can I say about this? In the beginning, there was just the show and the opening. Later on, 10 years ago, I started having a symposium on Monday. The participants came to Holland from everywhere, from America, from Australia, from Japan. So then on Monday, all the participants showed their work to their colleagues. There was this huge show, and, for instance, the first artist took one of her or his pieces out of the show, put it on the next graduate—so he or she was the model—and then they started talking about the work. It went on and on, sort of like—what do you call it?—it went from one to the other. Of course, they were not used to talking in public, so it was quite emotional. People were very nervous, but it was heartbreakingly beautiful. Also the fact that they came from all over the world, it was really something. People traveling from America, it's not that expensive to travel to Holland, but from Australia, it's a really expensive trip. From Japan it's really expensive, so it's very good they came.  Then 10 years ago, I started to award the Marzee Prize, the Marzee Graduate Prizes. They were awarded to six to eight people, but sometimes there was so much beautiful work that I had 10 people. The prize consisted of a workshop in Ravary, an estate in Belgium. Some friends of mine built a large workshop there. It's paradise, where they can work for a whole week. Everyone has a bedroom and we cook together; we talk together. It's working deep into the night; also drinking deep into the night. Unfortunately, last year we didn't have this workshop. We are not allowed to travel. This year there will probably not be a workshop, either, so that's a pity. The borders are still closed. We are not allowed to travel to Germany, which from here is only five kilometers. Belgium is a bit further, but we are not allowed.  A few years ago, also to try to help young people, I started Intro in Amsterdam. My son, who you just saw, has studied in Amsterdam. He's a lawyer. I rented a place for him 30 years ago. I still have that place, but it was redone two years ago and made into a gallery workshop. In 2019, I was awarded another prize, Gallerist of the Year 2019 by RISD, Rhode Island School of Design.   Sharon: Wow!  Marie: Yeah, maybe you didn't know that.  Sharon: Now it's coming back. Yes, I do remember that. Marie: It was a real surprise. It was very nice. I had to travel to RISD because they set up a show for me in the museum. Then Tracy, the head of the department, said, “I would like you to participate and organize everything in Amsterdam at Intro. I would like for you to run this gallery for three years.” I was the Gallerist of the Year for three years, and we started to do this. The board liked it very much, so for a year we have had two internships there. You can live there; you can work there. It's a beautiful workshop and a beautiful gallery. They make exhibitions with the graduates, but last year there was nothing because they had to return to America. They were not allowed to come here, but probably in August or September there will be two people from RISD again. Not everyone was allowed to participate in Amsterdam at Intro. We selected 20 people per year who could show their work and have exhibitions in Amsterdam. I hoped it would help, but we still have to see because it was interrupted by this horrible Covid disaster. That's my graduate show. There is much more to it.  Sharon: Administering something like that is such a big task. Coming from a traditional background of jewelry and fine art, what attracted you to art jewelry? How did you transition? Marie: The jewelry my brother made was not so far from what you call art jewelry. I'm not such a fan of the term art jewelry, although I don't know what else we should call it. I don't know. Jewelry was not only the thing I did. When the gallery existed for 10 years, I made an exhibition of combs. Sharon: Clothes? Marie: Combs, to comb your hair. Sharon: Combs, O.K. Marie: I did this because I thought a comb is a piece you can use, and I had objects in the gallery you could use. I also sometimes had exhibitions with fine arts, and I had jewelry. I had all three in the small gallery at the time, so I thought a comb has all those elements in it. It's graphic, you can use it as a utensil, and you can wear it as a piece of jewelry. I asked 400 artists in the whole world to make a comb, and I selected 80 pieces for a traveling show. This was really the start of the gallery, because I had a fantastic graphic designer who made a book for it. I had an interior designer who made huge showcases for it. I traveled to museums to ask if they would be interested to have the exhibition after it had been in my gallery. I had the luck that I went to Rotterdam to a famous museum, Boijmans van Beuningen, and they said they would gladly have the exhibition, but they wanted it as a premiere. That was not what I wanted, because I wanted it for my 10thanniversary, and then they said, “No, we want it first.” It was a very good decision to do this, because after that, all the newspapers were full, all the magazines were full, and all the museums wanted to have this exhibition. I have had this exhibition in Tokyo, in Cologne, in Frankfurt, in Pforzheim. My name was there, and then I decided to buy 40 of those pieces. They are now in my collection. My collection is more than 2,000 pieces, I think, and they mirror the history of the gallery. That exhibition was the real start of the gallery. That's when it started to become international. Sharon: For anybody who hasn't been to the current gallery, the building is incredible. It's worth going just to see the building itself. How long have you been in that building? Marie: This is a building channeled with history. There is a history to this building. The town of Nijmegen owns the building, and it used to be a grain warehouse in the beginning of the 20th century. It's around 1900 or even older. They wanted to tear it down to have a hotel here, a Holiday Inn, if you can imagine, but there were some parties in town who wanted culture in this building. I had to fight Holiday Inn. I remember very well, Sharon, that Holiday Inn's director called me and said, “Ms. Van der Hout, why don't you let us buy the building and you can have the ground floor?” Sharon, you know those hotels that have a gallery on the ground, those galleries are mostly horrible. In the end, I won the fight. In 1992, the building was mine; I bought it, but it was ruined. I showed the architect the building, and we had to climb on ladders because the town had decided to tear it down and everything was taken out. The wooden floors were taken out. The only thing left were the beams and those beautiful walls, of course, but that was all. I climbed on that ladder and I fell down and broke my back. Sharon: Oh my gosh! Marie: I lost part of my memory, which is sometimes annoying. On the whole, it's O.K., but I broke my back. I could have been in a wheelchair. When I fell down, I woke up after a half hour or an hour and walked to my art gallery. That seemed a bit strange, so they called a doctor and ambulance and I was taken to the hospital. They said, “You're O.K. You can go because you walked,” and I said, “No, I can't get up anymore.” Then I had this scan and they saw that my back was broken in three places. Sharon: Oh my gosh, you got up and walked! Marie: I was in a cast for a long time. I thought, “Maybe this is too big a task for me. Maybe this was a warning.” Then I thought, “Oh no, I'm going to build an elevator so everyone who is in a wheelchair can see all the floors.” Every day I'm glad I made that decision. Sharon: The building is so fabulous. Did you have a vision for what you wanted? I'm sure you worked closely with the architect, but what was in your mind? Marie: I had a bit in my mind, but my ideas at the time were that it should be wide and so on. I had a fantastic architect, a really fantastic architect, and he didn't want it to be wide; he wanted the walls as they were. We have concrete floors because it was the only possibility. Thanks to this architect—he was a very well-known Dutch architect, by the way, because the town said, “We want this to be a fantastic architectural place. You can invite three architects and we'll pay for that, but the architect you take, you will have to pay him yourself.” They never paid those other architects, by the way, but never mind. I'm so very glad with this architect, and sometimes I see him. Two years ago, he was married for I don't know how many years, and he said, “Marie, I want to go visit the buildings in Holland I'm most proud of”—there are several museums he built—“and you have one of those buildings. If it's O.K. with you, I'd like to have a party here.” He said, “You used it so well. It's so well done now.” I travel a lot—not at the moment, of course—but every time I come home to my building, I feel relieved.  Sharon: It's home.  Marie: It's not only home, it's my first building I remember very well. Once I went on a holiday, and I came back home and I stood in front of my first gallery. I was still in my car in front of the first gallery, and I said to someone, “I don't want to get out. I don't want to do it anymore.” Here, every time I come back, it's rest and peace; it's fantastic. I don't know. Sharon: It is an amazing building  Marie: And inside it's fantastic, of course.  Sharon: You're in a fabulous location. I want to let people know when they go to the gallery, they may need a lot of time because you have a lot of—it's not one small gallery. Marie: No, it's not. I started collecting from the very beginning. I always bought something from my exhibitions, because if people didn't do it, I had to do it. I have a huge collection, but the pieces I have from the beginning are maybe not that interesting. Since then, I have the best pieces. It's fantastic. I have a huge collection of Dorothea Prühl, the necklace I'm wearing now— Sharon: Say the name again. Marie: Dorothea Prühl. Sharon: Dorothea Prühl. It's a fabulous necklace made of wood. Marie: Yeah, there was an exhibition two years ago in New York. Do you know Nancy and Georgio? Sharon: No. Marie: They have the Magazzino, the museum for Italian Art near New York. It's a fantastic, beautiful museum. Anyway, they had an exhibition about arte povera in New York, and there was a famous artist—I can't remember the name; that's my memory—who gave a talk there. The sculptor was there, a famous artist from Italy, and he came to me and said, “You have a fantastic necklace.” It was this necklace. I told Dorothea, of course, because that's a famous sculptor and all her work is like this. There's something else which may be interesting; you know I'm working with schools. Sharon: No, tell us about that. It doesn't surprise me, but tell me about that. Marie: Apart from the private shows. Dorothea Prühl, for instance, she is from Eastern Germany. Sharon: I just want to interrupt, because some people listening have never heard of Dorothea Prühl, who is one of the leading and most well-established art jewelers. Continue, I'm sorry. Marie: She was teaching in Halle in former Eastern Germany. I got to know her work because I went to an exhibition in Halle with her and her class and another teacher. I saw the work and thought, “I would like to have this in the gallery.” The well-known German artist who was there with me said, “There's no way she will do this. She doesn't like Wessies.” Do you know Wessies? People from the west, Western Europe. But I thought, “You know what? I'm going to call her.” So, I called her, and then came this voice. She was a heavy smoker, Sharon, and I said, “I want to make an appointment with you. Is that O.K?” “Oh, yes.”  It was sort of love at first sight.  Sharon: We understand. Marie: Sometimes you have this immediate connection, so I went there. The work she did with her students was fantastic, and then and there I decided I was going to do school exhibitions. I said, “I want you to have an exhibition with your whole class in the gallery for five years. Every spring you will have an exhibition.” They did, and it was always a beautiful exhibition. I bought a lot of pieces for the collection from this exhibition. After those five years, I asked Iris Eichberg. At that time, she was teaching at an academy, and I asked if she would be interested in working with us. She said, “I can't do it. I'm not happy with the level of what's being done here.” Then I decided I would go to the Royal College in London first, with Otto Kunzli in Munich. Otto Kunzli had a show here for five years with his students, also in spring. Then I started to make it a bit shorter, three years with the Royal College with Hans Stauffer. He was the head of the department. At the moment, I'm working with Nuremburg. This is our fourth year. At the end of this month, they will set up an exhibition, also a class exhibition. Do you know that I publish magazines of all the exhibitions? Sharon: Yes. Marie: And we always buy pieces. I really like to work with students. I really like to do this. Sharon: What is it that you like about it? Marie: I don't know, the way that they're open to things. I like that they‘re still developing. By the way, the only school where there were more boys in class was in Munich. In Holland, there was only one boy. In Munich, there were a lot of boys. Most schools just have girls, although in the end, the boys got famous.  Sharon: That's the way it is, yes. Marie: Yes, that's the way it is. Sharon: I was really interested to read that you don't like the term art jewelry. We call it art jewelry because, as you say, there's not another term, but why don't you like the term art jewelry? Marie: Because I think if you're talking about painting, you don't say art paintings or art culture or art design or arts this and that. It's a discipline like all other disciplines. You have paintings, and some are art and some are not. It's the quality that makes it art. It's sometimes not a quality we see now, but it may be that in a hundred years what we now define as art is not what they think of those pieces later on. I don't know. For me it's jewelry, although it's difficult because jewelry is not a well-respected art form. Sharon: Right. Marie: Not at all. Every day I still have to convince people that this is a full-blown art discipline. Sharon: Because you're on the front lines, what do you see as the future of this kind of jewelry? Call it avant garde jewelry, call it art jewelry. It's different than gold and diamonds, in a sense. Marie: It's different. The jewelry that sells best is still gold, unfortunately. Not unfortunately, because I love gold, but there is all gold. A few years ago, I was invited to make an exhibition with Vicenza in Italy. Vicenza is the gold town of Italy. It's where the gold industry is, where they make all those fashion jewelry pieces, and there is a museum. The director asked me, “Will you please make an exhibition for our art jewelry department?” They have design jewelry, fashion jewelry, and art jewelry. The one who made an exhibition before me was Helen Drutt, and she also made an exhibition in the art department. I thought, “Well, O.K., I'm going to make this exhibition, and I'm going to make it only with gold because I'll show them that there is different work you can make with gold.” She told me, “This is my best exhibition ever.” It was a beautiful golden arts jewelry exhibition in their museum. The last year of the exhibition, unfortunately, the last part, was during Covid. What can you do.  Sharon: You don't often see gold in a lot of the art jewelry galleries. Was it difficult to find pieces that you felt belonged in the exhibition? Marie: No. I showed pieces from my collection.  Sharon: Your personal collection? Marie: My personal collection. I have several beautiful golden pieces of Dorothea Prühl. I have several Dutch artists who work in gold. I have enough to show a lot of work. It was 50 pieces, I think. Sharon: O.K., wow!  Marie: I have some from the students from Holland, which reminds me there were two pieces, one big color piece from a student from Holland and one big brooch. Sharon: Do you see an increase in interest with a la carte jewelry and things made of alternative materials, like plastic or wood? Marie: I think this is returning in jewelry. You can make jewelry out of all sorts of materials, and for me, it doesn't really matter. The only thing I don't like so much in jewelry is plastic, because I don't like plastic very much, but for the rest it's fine. What I don't buy anymore is rubber jewelry because it disintegrates. I have rubber pieces in my collection, and they were made of horrible material. I didn't throw them out; I put them in envelopes and kept them, but no. It's difficult to get people interested in jewelry. One of the things I did to get people interested in it, I made a series of exhibitions in museums. It's called “Jewelry, the Choice of, and I followed with the name of the town. I did 10 of those exhibitions in Dutch museums, one in the European parliament in Brussels and another one, my best one, in St. Andrews in Scotland. That exhibition was magic.  What happens normally is that in Holland, the director of the museum selects 25 women and men who they want to come to the gallery. They come by bus for a whole day, and I select pieces from the collection. It's like a Tupperware party, but I want them to get interested in jewelry. Obviously, at St. Andrews that was not possible, that people would come by bus to Scotland. So, the director asked everyone to give her a photo, and she wrote something about the work people did so I could get to know who those people were. I found it very difficult to not see someone and not try something on. So what I did, I had these photos in the gallery for three weeks, and I spread them out on my top floor on this large table. Every day I walked past those photos, looked at the photos, and thought, “Who are you? Who are you?” Then the museum came to collect the pieces I selected for those 24 people. I have to admit I was quite nervous, because what if the people didn't like those pieces and said, “I don't want to wear this,” or “I will wear it, but I don't like it”? But I went there, and we had a meeting in one of the castles. Every quarter of an hour, someone came in and I was supposed to give them the piece of jewelry I selected for them, have them put it on and tell them something about this piece, about the artist. After that, they were interviewed for a movie; there was a movie made for this exhibition. I gave a big gold brooch to the first person who came in, a student from Holland, Christine Matthias, I went to her and said, “I'm giving you the sun,” and she had—how do you say it—goose bumps. Sharon: Goose bumps, yes. Marie: She said, “How do you know?” “How do I know what?” “Yesterday I saw the sun spinning.” O.K., that was number one. The next one was a man, and I gave him a silver brooch of a lizard, a beautifully made small brooch of a lizard, and his wife said, “Last year he wrote a poetry book about lizards.” I was flabbergasted, Sharon, and this went on and on. Not everyone had this reaction, but a lot did. The British people are good talkers, and I told everyone something about the piece of jewelry. Later on, as I said, there was a movie made, and they had to tell something about this piece. They were so well-spoken about it. They looked closely at those pieces. There was an understanding of what the artist had done. It was my best exhibition to promote jewelry with people. I am friends with the director; we eat together every year when there is a Collect in London—except this year, because there is no Collect. Those experiences make my life as a gallerist so beautiful, so exciting.  With this Covid disaster we had to stay home, so we had no visitors and the gallery was closed, and I thought, “You know what? I don't know many people in Nijmegen. I'm focused abroad; I'm focused on faraway places. Who do I know here on my street, for instance?” On the old street of Nijmegen—it's a beautiful street with fantastic houses—I hardly know anyone. I thought, “I'm going to make an exhibition with 25, 30 people, and I will keep it to my street.” So, now I'm making an exhibition called “In My Street.” A few hours ago, we had the first photographs with a photographer who lives on the street of people who have lived the longest on this street, a man and wife who have lived here for 60 years. We're doing that now, and we will probably make 35 photos and have an exhibition here. At this time last year, I invited the former director of the museum of the town who lived on this street. He's a very introverted man, and I went to him and said, “I'd like you to participate in this exhibition,” and he said, “No, no.” In the end, I convinced him he had to do it, and he said, “But only if the exhibition is in your place,” because he likes beauty. Last week I heard that he died. I want the photos to be taken of people in their own houses. He had this fantastic office in the front of his home, full of books and a huge desk, that was beautiful to photograph in, but he's not there anymore, so it's just— Sharon:Yeah, it's a shame.  Marie: Yeah, it's a shame, but I think it will be a beautiful exhibition, very near home. My idea now is this “In My Street.” I want other streets to make the same exhibition and come to the gallery. Everyone can see “In My Street” and have 25 people. We have a whole grid around town with everyone. Now I'm home on my own street. The first time I went to visit people, someone said to me, “Of course you don't know anyone. You never come out of your gallery.” It's not true, but I live on top of my gallery, so I go by elevator, get out on my terrace and go in my house.  Sharon: You put the pandemic to good use with this. Marie: Yes. Sharon: Marie, I could talk to you forever. Thank you so much. This is great, because it's so hard when you're at a show to talk to anyone for more than three seconds. It's great to hear your whole story, and thank you for sharing it with us. Marie: Thank you, Sharon. There's much more.  We will have images posted on the website. You can find us wherever you download your podcasts, and please rate us. Please join us next time when our guest will be another jewelry industry professional who will share their experience and expertise. Thank you so much for listening. Thank you again for listening. Please leave us a rating and review so we can help others start their own jewelry journey.

This week Jeff and Dave take a trip to the Dutch Renaissance with a look at prolific Latin poet, theological secretary, Dutch patriot, and Greek scholar Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655). After a whirlwind introduction to leading Italian, French, and Dutch luminaries, we get right into the vita and opera of this amazing scholar. Heinsius served as secretary at the Synod of Dort (1618-1619) and also wrote some incredible Dutch poetry (sampled for us by Utrecht scholar Aron Ouwerkerk). He also tried his hand at a wide array of genres: emblems, love elegies, epithalamia (poems for weddings), funeral orations, tragedies like "Herod Babykiller" (Herodes Infanticida), and a 4-book hexameter poem "How to Despise Death" (De Contemptu Mortis) modeled on Vergil's Georgics. Be sure to stay with us until the end for the couplet Danny spoke to his foot. Fresh new kicks and pants!

It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to.   Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too.   Welcome to two new Patreon Producers! ALEX EFTIMIE and BETTY MCDANIEL   2013 MERCEDES-BENZ SLS AMG COUPÉ ELECTRIC DRIVE   - Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2012 with deliveries beginning in 2013, it was anticipated that less than 100 examples would be built, but in reality production was far fewer. This car is beleived to be one of just nine examples completed.   - Powered by four electric motors at each corner bringing a total output of 750 PS (740 bhp) and 1,000 NM of torque, the SLS AMG Electric Drive’s transmission allows for seamless four-wheel drive performance. The car’s lithium-ion battery pack at full charge could provide a range of 250 km.   - Paddle shifters behind the steering wheel allow the driver to control the level of regenerative braking available, meaning that one-pedal driving can be achieved with ease.   - Believed to be one of only nine examples produced, these cars provided a rare glimpse into the future of the sports car, a future which is fast approaching, and as such the SLS AMG Electric Drive will continue to be highly sought after by collectors for years to come as it has set the standard for others to follow.   Highlighted Source : https://share.getliner.com/KCWMV/ Original Source : https://rmsothebys.com/en/home/private-sales/r5104-2013-mercedes-benz-sls-amg-coup%C3%A9-electric-drive/1090213       RIVIAN TO PARTNER WITH NATIONWIDE FOR INSURANCE PROGRAM   - Rivian’s plans to sell insurance for its electric vehicles are now taking shape, with new details released about data-driven coverage and a partnership with established underwriter Nationwide.   - Rivian recently announced plans to sell insurance products as part of its digital ordering process. The company says by linking insurance to the vehicle itself, it will be able to diagnose issues more quickly and comprehensively, and even remotely. And those who use Rivian’s mid-level autonomous driving tool can get discounts on their insurance rates.   - Rivian Insurance will be available to customers in 40 states initially; insurance is generally regulated state-by-state. The policies will be underwritten by third-party carriers.   - The reason it’s possible is because of telematics, also known as usage-based insurance (UBI), a trend that’s grown within the insurance business for the past decade or so. That’s technology inside of a car that can track how fast you accelerate, how hard you brake—in other words, how risky you are. With super-connected vehicles like Rivian’s, there is simply more data available.   - Every Rivian vehicle is equipped with the company’s Driver+ suite of safety technology. Rivian Insurance customers will automatically receive a Driver+ rate reduction, in addition to any discounts for using the feature that automatically steers and adjusts speed on the highway.   Highlighted Source : https://share.getliner.com/18Nal/ Original Source : https://www.wglt.org/post/rivian-partner-nationwide-insurance-program#stream/0   HOW BIDEN PLANS TO BUILD 500 EV CHARGING STATIONS   - President Joe Biden has proposed spending at least $15 billion to begin rolling out electric vehicle charging stations, with the goal of reaching 500,000 charging stations nationwide by 2030.   - he roll-out of chargers should match consumer adoption to moderate demand and allow time to expand the electric grid   - Dan Ives, an analyst at Wedbush Securities: “In order for EVs to be more pervasive, it’s going to have to be gas station-like, where you can find an EV charging station with significant capacity” almost anywhere.   - The Biden administration has frequently likened the president’s infrastructure proposal and the EV initiatives within it to the roll out of the interstate highway system in the 1950s in scope and potential influence, which cost about $1.1 trillion in today’s dollars ($114 billion at the time).The gas stations that dot the interstates and reach out into some of the most remote areas of the country didn’t come all at once — they tracked with demand for cars and trucks as it rose over the 20th century, experts say.   - There are about 102,000 public charging outlets across about 42,000 charging stations nationwide today, according to the Department of Energy, with a third concentrated in California   - However, investment from utilities, auto companies and private charging companies won’t be enough without some government help, said charging specialists in each industry — both to support the market expansion and to ensure it happens quickly and equitably, as the administration has said it hopes to do.It’s also crucial in order to be competitive with China, experts say, which has dramatically outpaced both the U.S. and Europe in publicly accessible chargers.   Highlighted Source : https://share.getliner.com/auPnO/ Original Source : https://www.govtech.com/transportation/biden-plans-to-build-500-ev-charging-stations     BIDEN'S FIRST 100 DAYS HAVE ALREADY ELECTRIFIED THE AUTO INDUSTRY   - An electric federal fleet   - EV tax credit renewal nabs attention   - $100 billion for direct EV rebates   - Half a million EV chargers   - Remaking America's EV supply chain   Highlighted Source : https://share.getliner.com/PsbqE/ Original Source : https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/biden-first-100-days-auto-industry-ev-emissions/?utm_source=reddit.com     ELECTRIC CARS TO STORE RENEWABLES IN THE NETHERLANDS   - We Drive Solar and Hyundai are planning to set up a network of 500 bi-directional EV recharging stations in the city and region of Utrecht. Through this technology, electric cars may contribute to the storage of renewable energy in a country affected by grid constraints.   - The stations will be initially tested on Hyundai's Ioniq 5 car, which is equipped with bi-directional charging technology.   - The project includes standardization and embedding of protocols, software-mediated control of charging stations, a scientific validation of the proposed “bi-directional ecosystem,” the large scale application of bidirectional shared cars in a green urban district, and coupling car-sharing reservations with bidirectional charging.   Highlighted Source : https://share.getliner.com/1cS1S/ Original Source : https://www.pv-magazine.com/2021/04/29/electric-cars-to-store-renewables-in-the-netherlands/   EV CHARGING NETWORK CHARGEPOINT NOW SUPPORTS ANDROID AUTO   - Android phone users will be able to find, navigate to, and start charging from a ChargePoint charging station from their car’s infotainment screen, without having to pick up their phone. Support for Android Auto follows the addition of CarPlay support in November last year.   - the Android Auto experience lets you view a map with nearby charging stations, check status, filter by metrics like availability and cost, and then start a charging session once you arrive.

However, the gain of roughly 10 miles or 5% is still too small to offset the difference to real-world results, which are usually significantly higher than EPA.   - Taycan Turbo is 212 miles (341 km), which is 11 miles, or 5.5% higher than before.   - Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the EPA Combined range increased by 9 miles or 4.7% compared to 2020 MY, to 201 miles (323 km)   Highlighted Source : https://share.getliner.com/oxe0V/ Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/504432/2021-porsche-taycan-turbo-epa/   QOTW   What’s the best consumer education for EVs in 2021?   RAJEEV NARAYAN Here in the U.S., and presumably in Europe,  the majority of car buyers have never driven an EV or may not even know anyone with an EV. Therefore an EV does not even come to mind when shopping for a car. A great many of these buyers  may be best served by an EV and don’t even know it. The most effective consumer education for them is free test drives that are heavily promoted, as once driven, EVs tend to sell themselves.   e-Tripping with Adam Gebbett Regarding question of the week. I would love to educate every new ev buyer that you do not need 500 miles of range. Why people bang on about range in the U.K. is a mystery. Bladder 100 miles, service station every 40 miles.   David Sawdon Great to see you back on YouTube. Love the addition of screen shots. Getting people in to electric vehicles is key. All loan vehicles while your ICE is in for a service should be electric cars to help adoption.   SACHA most effective consumer education imho starts with butts in seat . I haven’t had one passenger that wasn’t immediately intrigued and asking questions. Those that are really interested do more reading after that , ask follow up questions etc.   ED CORTEEN The best way to reach people who do not drive EVs is to give them a test drive, any Dealer who is serious should use EVs as service loaners for their customers. You can watch as many YouTube videos as you like but real experience is the only way to find out.   DAVID CURTIS To get more bums in the seats of EV is by word of mouth and seeing for them selves how great they are.   BYRON STUMMAN Thinking about the most effective consumer education method, I think it has to come from dealerships.  Commercials and news stories are great but people are physically buying their new cars at dealerships. The sales teams and management need to be pro EV, showcase the cars on showroom floors and encourage customers to give them a test drive. Bums in seats as you say. Currently from sales teams there is still a lot of apprehension and doubt whether EV’s are serious cars worth buying.   DOUG VOWLES Here in Ontario Canada, we have Plug ‘n Drive, (About Plug’n Drive – Plug'n Drive (plugndrive.ca)) an organization that provides free EV test drives and consumer education.  It’s non-profit funded by Ontario Power Generation and other companies with a stake in EV success.  But this is something that governments and auto companies should be mandating world-wide.  Sample a typical EV experience first and “get it” – then worry about what the best brand and model is.   MARK RICHARDS I drive for Uber with my Bolt.  And I get a LOT of questions about it from people.  In fact, I think I’ve convinced at least 5 people to make a trip to the chevy dealer to check one out…especially with how cheap they are going right now. I should work out a deal with a local Denver dealer to get me a commission
