handmade ceramics and pottery workshops
about my ceramics
Each item is carefully handmade in my studio in Antwerp (Belgium). The majority of my collection is individually crafted on the potter's wheel, a technique I also teach in my workshops. Some pieces are made by hand from slabs of clay.
After a certain drying period, the clay reaches the 'leather hard' phase. In this phase the items are trimmed and refined.
The next step is 'bisque firing', where the items are fired for the first time to a temperature of approximately 950°C.
The pots are then prepared for the glazing process. I make all the glazes myself, with carefully composed and perfected recipes from raw materials.
Once glazed, the items must dry to allow the moisture from the glaze to evaporate. They are then fired again, this time at a temperature of 1220°C, to sinter the clay and melt the glaze.
Finally, they undergo strict quality control and sharp edges or irregularities are removed from the foot.
The end result is a unique, high-quality product that will last a lifetime. Experience the joy of pottery for yourself by participating in one of our workshops, with a focus on throwing on the potter's wheel!
