Hi, I am a Dutch potter and work from my studio in our beautiful garden near Oxford. I'm passionate about working on the potter's wheel and make functional stoneware, pots, plates, bowls which can be used on a daily basis.

I use a lovely, groggy, rustic clay and a white glaze for a simple, non fussy appearance. Food stands out so well against the white ceramic. Since visiting a number of potters in Japan I like to incorporate akebia quinata vine in my work for handles. A beautiful, natural material. All work is oven and dishwasher proof apart from pieces with akebia handles.

I usually make to order but occasionally have work in stock. I have sold through Liberty's, Fortnum & Mason, Daylesford (Kingham, Notting Hill, Pimlico), and David Mellor. I now mainly sell from the pottery and through the website, and send orders within the UK, to Europe and the States. Do come and visit when you are in the area or do contact me if you have any questions or would like to place an order. It will be lovely to talk to you!
