'FUNDAMENTALS OF MAKKUM' by Royal Tichelaar

Royal Tichelaar Makkum is persistently on the prowl for novel applications of ceramics. This year they go back to basics with a focus on tradition and the inherent beauty of local products.

Event date: 22-04-2009 to 26-04-2009

Last year Tichelaar’s Flower Pyramids won wide international acclaim. These exuberant celebrations of ceramic mastery showed the public craftsmanship and attention for detail as ‘New Luxury’.

To contrast such highly exclusive tulip vases, produced in very limited numbers, Royal Tichelaar Makkum chose rather basic products for this year: a straightforward pottery’s service developed with Atelier NL, in line with a tradition that has continued in Makkum until well into the 19th century; and two wood burning traditional tile stoves as reinterpreted by Dick van Hoff. These products’ Arcadian charms demonstrate the beauty of local products and traditions. Both the service set and tile stove will also be introduced in a hand painted version.
