A bowl can be a sculpture or a functional object. If you put an apple in it it’s useful.

I like to play with this.

Every item is handmade; if you look closer and you can trace the lines left by my fingers. I throw all shapes in stoneware clay, then I fire them twice at 1,240°C in an electric kiln. The outer surface feels very soft thanks to the use of Terra Sigillata, a primer that gives a silky skin colour and attracts you to reach out and touch.

I sign each piece with the O of Oker (Ochre in Dutch), which is also the O of wOndering and (im)perfectly rOund.


In my shop you can find the items which are available at the moment.
