Holiday season

Blog Post with Image

For this holiday season we have collaborated with other designers and makers from Utrecht. Are you looking for an original gift? Look no further! We created special giftboxes with the sweetest treats. Like a set of a large OPGEROLD cup with a bag of Classic Chai Latte by Dem Good Chai. A delicious spice mix to mix with (vegetable) milk.

Or what about a set of two OPGEROLD mini cups with poured candles from Brandt kaarsen? You'll get two different scents: Clove+Cedar and Wild Tobacco. Once the candles are all burned up, you can use the porcelain as espresso cups!

You'll get a free Christmas card, illustrated by Agnes Loonstra with each order, untill the end of the year. All orders above €50 get a free mini Christmas bauble, above €100 a small bauble, above €150 a large bauble. All orders above €250 get a free Christmas tree topper! Let us know which colour you would like or we will pick a colour for you.

Dutch Design Week 2022

From 22 till 30 October I will be showing my new STUCCO collection in Eindhoven during DDW. While exploring new ways to recycle porcelain waste, I created a collection of vases and wall objects, inspired by stucco techniques. Every type of production creates waste. With slipcasting I create “trimmings”; the residue from cutting the edges. With this project I am cleaning up my own mess, trying to become a zero-waste company.

In 2012 I graduated with a collection called Porcelain+. I created new colours and textures by mixing different metals and recycled glass through porcelain slip. The trimmings weren’t suitable for recycling into new slip because the oxides affected the behaviour of the clay. I decided to save the trimmings for later.

New dates for workshops and courses are online! Submit to one of our workshops or courses and learn everything about ceramics and slipcasting with porcelain. During a workshop you will go through the basics in one afternoon of evening. During a course you will learn more about the techniques and go through the whole process of mould making, slip casting and glazing in six or eight weeks.

Is one workshop not enough? During the summer I will organize two porcelain weekends on July 16+17 or August 27+28. For two whole days you can follow all kinds of workshops in my studio. You will be casting with porcelain, but you will also decorate with different techniques. Sign up now because full=full.

Blog Post with Image

During the lockdown in 2020 I started collaborating with Saudade Collective. This new initiative is all about sustainable and fair design, by working together closely with craftsmen and women. I am one of the lucky few that got to design a new collection of porcelain planters and vases for this label!

The RIBBEL collection is now available online and in few stores in NL! Do you want to see the pieces before buying? Make an appointment to visit my studio in Utrecht or the office of Saudade Collective in Emmen.
