Parts for the pear wood box were made by Woodwave in Rotterdam and the salvaged wood mosaic was laser cut by Snijlab, also in Rotterdam. Everything was put together by hand by Ron van der Ende. Because of the nature of the materials used, every box and lid is slightly different.

Proceeds from Numbers 1 through 30 of The Factory Set Special Edition were used to finance the book.

The Factory Set

The Factory Set was a large solo presentation at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, a mid-career retrospective featuring 37 bas-reliefs, most of which were kindly provided by various collectors and museums. The works on this page were made in relation to the show.
