Besides producing work under the label Made in Mokum, I teach ceramic- and pottery-students. It's something I've always loved doing and it's a great way to learn things yourself. I've been teaching at the KleiAcademy for 5 years now and I teach occasionally at my own studio. I've given masterclasses in throwing and workshops about glazing.
Every year in spring I go on a mission to let secondary school pupils feel the clay. During the workshops they sculpt and form and they have their first experience at the potterswheel. It's very rewarding to see childeren enjoy clay and see those that are not so good at 2D and drawing, excell in 3d and sculpting.
I have a passion for schoolplates. So it was inevitable that I would design and make some for the classes that I teach. There are plates for Throwing, The Electric Kiln and Chemistry for Potters. They are printed on color-proof and waterproof canvas and finished with grey trimmings and black wooden rails. Available in dutch and english, 325 euro incl. vat.
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, they can just look beautiful. 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.
