For ages silver ware has been the source of inspiraton for many an artist. The trade reached an unprecedented level thanks to religious silver ware. Unfortunately, orders dropped away in the course of the twentieth-century. More and more studios had to close their doors, and monumental silver were faded into the background. Gradually, even the training left much to be desired.

Rob Thalen and his son Jaap want to again create 'beauty': silver objects, utensils, works of art that have long been lost. Monumental creations, demanding old craftmanship as well as the most advanced techniques. Based in Francorchamps, Belgium, their designs are valued all over the world.
