vase Donte

Donte is a lava vase with a rising figure

Donte is the first of the emerging-men-from-the-lava-vases. He was the inspiration and now he is let go to be sold. The dark clay has a transparant glaze on the inside. The outside is covered in a lava glaze that goes from buff to a pink. Thats what manganese does. Ofcourse the rim is covered in bronze. But the eye-catcher is of course the little man that comes out of the lava to climb in the vase...

    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.
