Based in Rotterdam Kralingen, Atelier van de Ven creates unique handmade ceramics and porcelain pieces. Founded by Dutch designer Jessica van de Ven, it is a ceramic laboratory where experiment is key. Using mainly porcelain and stoneware both functional objects and artistic sculptural work is created in the atelier, strongly influenced by Japanese and northern European aesthetics.
The focus is on small-batch, high-quality artisanal ceramics. The ceramics are largely minimalist and functional, but there’s also artistic and sculptural work being produced. Whether you need a cup, vase, set of plates, or just a beautiful sculpture, there’s something for you.
Various techniques are used, slipcasting, wheelthrowing, handbuilding and combinations of these techniques. Every item is made by hand and unique. The goal is to create items that are handcrafted, well designed, timeless and durable.
To reduce the carbon footprint, the firing is done in an electric kiln that runs on green electricity. The porcelain, stoneware and glazes are made in-house, using locally (European) sourced ingrediënts that are non-toxic and leadfree. All material is reused, leaving waste to a minimum.
