That I believe Patricia Urquiola is the best designer in the world ... is again proved to me by her for new collection glazed porcelain tiles called Mutina Azulej for academy tiles.
Just spectacular in every sense of the word ... 9 single patterns make up to 27 different patterns and come in three different colour ways ... Nero, Grigio & Bianco.
If Rik and I ever were to buy a new house I would most certainly incorparte tiles in our home!

A ceramic artist and illustrator combined forces ... and see the lovely result. Mitsy Sleurs from ArtMind, who is living and working in Hasselt, Belgium and illustrator Lila Ruby King from the UK made these mugs, plates and bowls.
I wanted to share with you my newest line of work, a collection of tableware made in collaboration with illustrator Lila Ruby King.
They named the collection Sea Level. For the imagery, they went with what they are calling a contemporary taken on Delfts blue. I really like them.

I hope you had a better weekend then I did... well Sunday was perfectly fine but Saturday I spend the day in bed with a terrible migraine ... meaning I couldn't go to my letterpress workshop arghhhhh ... hope soon I can try again.
Sunday we spend almost the entire day at home trying to finnish decorating our new place. Her on my instagram feed you can see some snapshots of our new place.
Yesterday my boy got sick home ... meaning another day gone for blogging and I am starting the Bloesem week today ... believe it is quite a good start.
Dutch photographer Caroline Coehorst made some beautiful pictures in the studio of Lenneke Wispelwey ... you know my favorite Dutch ceramist.
Enjoy the pictures while I am working on more posts for this week! ~irene xoxo

Color Collision from Rogier Arents on Vimeo.
I just love starting a week on Bloesem with some spectecular ceramics ...
Who would have thought that the pigment of a red cabbage could have such a strong color impact!
Read more here about what dutch designers Kristie van Noort and Rogier Arents discovered when mixing ceramics and red cabage 'soup' perhaps easiest to watch the short movie first ... you will love it!
Completely different but just as stunning is the Cornewll collection from Kristie van Noort. The shape and pastel color make this the perfect tableware for me.
