This plate is called Andreas, after the crosses, called Andreas crosses. This way, three vertical crosses with red on the side, they make up the Amsterdam crest. And no, the triple X is a coincidence, as the Amsterdam logo is from before the 15th century. Andreas is fully handthrown, hand-carved and handglazed in Mokum (which is Amsterdam). Andreas is made as a limited series. This is number I. This one has holes at the back to hang.

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..
