1. Which one of my noses matched your clown, or why did you choose this model?
I chose the "peck" because she fits Lotti's face so small and cheeky and wonderfully underlines Lotti's essence.
"Both technique and aesthetics are perfect for me with your noses. I am originally a craftswoman and always enjoy good work." says Tanja Landes about our handmade noses.
2. What does your clown do and in what environment is it used.
I'm in the children's hospital, retirement homes, oncology and palliative care wards in the adult sector, and as an escort clown at funerals.
3. What experience, what encounter has been particularly memorable to you?
I was perceived in the retirement home by a demented resident as a child missing in the war. He gave me a joyful, relieved hug. It was a reunion that developed during this encounter. I was able to share his joy very well in my clown character. Afterwards, the caregivers reported that the resident became much calmer and more balanced and passed away peacefully a few weeks later.
I am also always touched by the fact that patients and residents, as well as their relatives, have requested that I be present at their funeral services as Lotti.
