A day job can serve as a perfect source of inspiration. During her first years in Rotterdam Iris was a cleaning lady. Seeing so many houses of strangers a week made her want to capture something of these private spaces without actually stealing something. So she started taking tiny boxes of clay with her to make imprints of the things she found interesting. This all happened in secret, without the knowledge of the owners.
