Maroeska Metz V.O.F. | 1989-1996

From 1989 to 1996, Maroeska was a co-owner of Maroeska Metz V.O.F. When she was a visual artist, she gained recognition at one point with hand-forged candleholders. This product was such a success that she started producing it systematically, with each piece being handcrafted, giving each candleholder a unique character.

She decided to become a designer and expand this candle line with other products such as lighting, mirrors, and vases. As it became a real business and she started collaborating with others, she established a partnership (VOF). She met her husband, Jim Oldenhave, in 1989, and he joined the company in 1991.
