conscious

I find it important to understand how our actions effect the world around us and look for powerful yet pleasant alternatives. I aim to create pieces you want to hold on to.

craftsmanship

I strongly believe in the power of seeing something arise from your own hands. I think craftsmanship has a big role to play in the shift in consumerism and contributes to a life of more fulfillment.

Testimonials

A few weeks back, I spent a beautiful calm morning in Iris studio for a handbuilding workshop. The lovely interior set the scene. After an introduction into techniques, all 5 of us started making our own pieces. Every one beautiful and unique in its own way.

I enjoyed the calmness of creating something myself, lovely conversations and delicious treats. I picked up my pieces today and am just so grateful to Iris! Hopefully I can take another workshop sometime soon!

I just received my ceramics, how beautiful they turned out with glaze! Thank you so much! I really enjoyed finally discovering wheel throwing. Your explanations were clear and your patience very nice! Your house and your coffee delicious! Many thanks for the very nice course. Maybe you'll see me again!

Dagmar

A beautiful and peaceful 2.5 hours with Iris! She taught me the basics of wheel throwing and in a few hours I already could make bowls and mugs by myself! She was a really kind teacher who also gives space and lets one do individual work! There were snacks and drinks also between the hard work.

A very good experience and would recommend for anyone who wants to learn pottery and appreciates a beautiful and comfortable studio!

Sofia

We had a private group of four with Iris. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Iris and her beautiful set up studio.

During the process Iris was patient, providing guidance and helping out throughout. It was a relaxing, fun and beautiful afternoon. We highly recommend her workshop!

Valentina

On a Sunday morning, I attended the intuitive handbuilding workshop. And it was wonderful! In Iris' cozy home we could sit down at a table where everything was already waiting for us. We were welcomed with the best coffee I have had in ages and homemade treats.

Iris is a nice person, she explains in a clear way what to expect and which techniques to use and helps you where needed. The hours fly by and the result is that I made something I'm really happy with.

If you like being creative and maybe trying something new in a nice and quiet environment, I can really recommend a workshop with Iris!

Nellies

I had a private wheel throwing session with my wife under Iris' guidance. The studio is in the heart of Amersfoort and has a calm atmosphere. Iris her guidance is calm, helpful and she has a good sense of humor. Highly recommended!

Sander

My boyfriend and I received this ceramics workshop as a gift and enjoyed the relaxed and personal atmosphere, the delicious snacks and how easy it actually was to make something beautiful that we can actually use at home.

Mariska

Beautiful plates and cups ordered from Iris. She is a true artist and has great attention to detail. She created exactly the ceramic pieces I was looking for, the cups and plates look beautiful on the shelves in my kitchen.

Great communication and beautiful creative handmade ceramics. Very special! Thank you Iris.
