The Full Story
Born in The Hague, the Netherlands, passionate photographer, art historian.
At the University Leiden I studied Art History combined with visiting the Royal Academy of Arts, after which I spent several years living and working in Florence, Italy.
Decorating porcelain started in the year two thousand and one ;) at Basalt Pottery in the Hague. Inspired by creatures of the sea and working on commission, sculpting figurines.
Its only a few years ago, in 2018, I visited Marrakech for the very first time when a new world opened up to me, a world of art and crafts ...activating my imagination.
Finding that inspiration comes naturally here and it to be a privilege working here together with talented moroccan potters.
Marocchino is inspired by the many magical colors of Marrakech, seen in nature and the colorful striped woolen rugs.
The Berber Button design is inspired by old Berber clothing buttons seen in the Musée bèrbère in the Majorelle Garden.
My aim is to seduce you to buy online
taking into account that every piece of pottery is unique because it is handmade, hand painted, baked and glazed by hand.... so it is possible to have some irregularities, which I think gives each piece their charm.
To minimize waste I'd like to act on command.
Hoping you will understand the 4 to 6 weeks of delivery time it will take.
