I made my first pot when I was eight. That experience has always stayed with me, because I still have that pot. When I was pregnant with my son I decided to learn how to turn pots and in 2010 I started practicing in Tongerlo Abbey. But there was hunger for more. I started in September 2013 at the Academy of Heist-op-den-Berg. A new world opened up for me there. Ceramic turned out to be a very broad concept and is much more than just making pots. With the encouragement of my teacher and the support of my husband, I took the step to work with clay full-time. And I did not regret it for a moment. What an adventure...I love both functional and artistic ceramics.
Exclusive dinnerware and artistic expressions merge aesthetically.
A thorough technical and formal research are a constant in my personal work. I also combine clay with dance, a second passion of mine. I recently started the BEAU Design label, for which I make ceramic washbasins, which, like everything I make, are 100% unique and traditional.
