Artist Reinier Lagendijk plays among other things with the capacity to deformation of nature. In our factory, we fire his latest project, tree trunks. To fire such big sculptures is a very scrupulous process. This project is something you wouldn't associate with a Delfts ceramic factory immediately but it shows the legion of possibilities.
His exhibition, Quand la nature s'éveille, will take place from 5th of March until 2nd of April in Galerie Ramakers in Den Haag.
Since september 2016, we are officially allowed to educate pupils from vocational schools. This aknowledgement refers to a formal branche called 'Unique Craftsmanship'.
Pupils in our factory will get acquainted with the practice of pottery under the guidance of a capable tutor. At least they will develop many different skills concerning the proces of ceramics.
For Tolmanns Gin we produced a beautifull Delft blue jar. The company of Tolmann makes his own gin and is situated in the Kunstfort near Vijfhuizen. We do like this cooperation between two (old) handcrafts.

The Dala horse is a wooden horse which once symbolized the Dalama landscape in Sweden but now is a symbol for Sweden as a whole.
For IKEA we produced a ceramic Dala horse. We received this order because the headoffice of IKEA is situated in Delft. So some of the horses have a beautifull Delft blue decoration. You cannot find the horses in the regular shops, they are meant for the intern sale.
Once more it's a good example of a traditional craft and modern design!
The ceramic outlet covers we made for design studio Suitedsuits, were very succesfully. We produced the outlet covers in Delft Blue, in white and in a single color. Suitedsuits delvered the objects at the Carlton hotels, but also at the Rijkmuseum in Amsterdam. Once and again, this is a nice example from a happy marriage between a traditional product, a ditto craft and contemporary Dutch design.

In 2015, we pleasantly worked together with Feyenoord, design studio Suitedsuits, Gsus sindrusties, Maître Frédéric Catering & More, Otolift, Korean Broadcasting System, VVV Gouda, Museum Gouda, LugthArt en several private clients in the Netherlands, Belgium, the United States and Japan. We like to thank them all.
Also we memorize with pleasure the day of the touroperators, the visit of the ceremics expert Johan Karelse, who did some research for an upcoming book and the really nice visit of the Korean celebrity Zie Ahn. We launched our new website this year and of course we were proud when the profession of decorating pottery was placed on the list of cultural heritage.
Finally, we wish you all a very happy and healthy 2016!
