Clay Service | 2009

Clay Service
2009 | for Royal Tichelaar Makkum


In line with a tradition that lived in Makkum until well into the 19th century in which the presence of local raw materials was a first condition for manufacturing, Royal Tichelaar Makkum introduces a straightforward pottery’s service by Atelier NL.

The project Drawn from Clay by Lonny van Ryswyck and Nadine Sterk (Atelier NL) started by digging up, shaping and baking clay from different locations through the Netherlands. They created a beautiful series of plate
s and bowls in different colors and structures, showing the local identity of the area the clay was taken from.

Their ideas neatly met our wishes and we collaborated to translate it into products. The result is a pottery’s service made from 6 different local Dutch clays.
