This smaller version of Gene is just that: lighter and equally beautiful. He's got crossing splashes of white milkey porcelain on a black slip. The body of the vase is made of creme stoneware, which shows at the base (as with all our vases). On the inside a glosse premium white and covering the whole a thick glass layer. Again, the iron of the black slip shows through the white rim, as does some manganes speckles. And just like Gene, Gerard has a thin edge so he lost his roundness. Like he cares...
glazes: LRW on the inside and black/porcelain/gloss 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..
