Studio Pieter Stockmans
For its artistic porcelain, Studio Pieter Stockmans combines traditional craft production with a contemporary experimental approach. The designers are constantly exploring the limits of the material. The studio is at C-Mine, a former mine terrain in Genk, and is the Belgian specialist in designs in hard porcelain.
Pieter Stockmans started his career as a designer for Mosa in Maastricht in 1967. He founded Studio Pieter Stockmans 20 years later.
Studio Pieter Stockmans has been concentrating on small and unique collections since 1987. Each product is manufactured from start to finish in its own workshops at C-Mine. Among its better-known creations are the trophy for the Memorial Vandamme cycle race and the plates for a royal wedding banquet in Monaco. The studio is highly thought-of among leading international chefs such as Alain Ducasse, Peter Goossens and Lanshu Chen.
Pieter has passed on his fifty years of knowhow and love of the material to his daughter Widukind, who has managed the studio since 2007. They continue the exceptional tradition of craftsmanlike hard porcelain in the studio together with a team of six. Frank Claesen has been designing there since 1999. In 2012, Linde Hermans also developed her first design for the studio.
