Hi! My name is Marieke and working with ceramics. Porcelain became a fascination for me during my study Product Design at ArtEZ and enhanced through my visit at the ceramic city’s: Arita, Japan and Jingdezhen, China where I also did a work periode. Within the knowledge that I gained am working for myself but also manufacture for others.

 

As a ceramist and product designer I am trying to find the extreme what is possible with porcelain, but that is still have a functional function, that is really important for me. I do this by stacking and assemble with different basic shapes. Trough this work method I can play with shapes and approach existing functions in new ways. Within this system I create a database of possibilities for myself.
