In April 2003, the artwork Nest was inaugurated during the redsign of the square in Bakkerstraat. A kind of foot basin with fountain was placed in the intimate atmosphere of that environment. The artwork itself is made of colorful ceramics. It represents a tree trunk with a bird's nest in which a number of young birds are sitting with their mouths open. In her imagination, the artist saw children from the neighborhood playing around in the basin.
