Figaro (yes, because it reminds us of a fig) was an experiment that worked out well. Just plain stoneware with a clear glaze on the inside. But on the outside there's a brown, iron-rich engobe with carved out stripes. It has some grainy texture on its shoulders. Small but very well balanced.
clay: white stoneware
glazes: clear on the inside and Brown engobe and clear on the outside.

So we're an artisan pottery studio in Amsterdam. We make ceramic things we love and share them with you. We do a lot of vases, bowls and pots. And if you want, just ask us to make one especially for you or your loved ones (dead or alive). Our work is sometimes dark and quirky, even wonky if you like. We don't care too much about traditional perfection.
We try to make usefull and beautiful stuff. If you don't put flowers or brushes or branches in our vases you can use them to hold a door or bang a nail in the wall. They are tough. Don't throw them at people. All our shapes and also our glazes are homebrewn. Made at our home and that's Mokum to us.
Really, what more do you need to know about us? Then drop us a note to share your thoughts, ask your question, put in an order or whatever you want from us..
