bowl Makena

Makena is a brown skrimpy bowl

This medium sized bowl is what we call 'dry'. The white matte glaze on the inside 'split' like a desert clay, but didn't melt much. On the inside it's 'wet'. A transparant glaze covers and closes the surface of the coarse dark brown clay. The heat of the kiln made the bowl a little oval.

    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.
