Why settle on Bornholm?
As it is rich in materials the island has historically been advantageous for ceramicists and industry, and the only place in Denmark stoneware can be sourced. From our common interest in geology, we build our collection of colours to create a coherent, recognisable narrative that gives a sense of being rooted.
What exactly are these soil colours?
Depending on the composition of the soil added to our glass recipes, excavated from various locations, the character and properties vary, resulting into colour and texture nuances. Our glazes, made of soil and water, fire a wide range of colours and textures into the surface of a ceramic body.

How do you combine tradition and innovation?
We use ancient colouring techniques which we adjust to modern manufacturing methods, so it works with modern technology, our hands and our studio equipment. Our goal is to make use of what lies beneath our feet (literally) and what we as craftspeople lean on.
What's the definition of well made, for you?
Well crafted objects connect us to the Earth and everybody on it. A well made object needs to be beautiful, meaningful or useful with an 'honest' appearance, showing where it has come from, what it’s made of and how it is made.
