Simple. Maybe you can call it barrel-shaped. But it is what it is. What makes Martiuso special is the skin; it has a beautiful crystilization and a nice drip. The glossy white glaze on the inside spills over on the outside. It makes for a wonderfull chromo on the edge. At some angle it looks like the glossy lower half reaches towards the top. Oh, Martiuso is really handsome. There's a little cobalt stain on the rim and it is quite heavy though.

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..
