'I WOULD LOVE TO LIVE LIKE A RIVER FLOWS,

 

CARRIED BY THE SURPRISE OF ITS OWN UNFOLDING'.

(John O'Donohue)

mOOn - sold by WallpaperStore*

Circle, a perfectly closed, round line. One of the strongest shapes, archetypes known and used throughout the history of mankind. Powerful in its simplicity, as the sun and the moon.

 

It was a challenge for me to work with this perfect shape. I altered the line and broke the surface. I created for each object a new curve, a new route, a new life. A poetic deflection.

  

mOOn is available in 3 sizes (ø 25 - 15 - 10cm), colored with different matt sinterengobes. (white - grey - brown - red - pink - peach).

Sold by WallpaperStore* (white - grey - brown - red)

This is about a journey of breathing in.

A journey towards the inner self. To find silence, beauty, balance and joy.

A journey to a place where one only has his heartbeat as companion. Peeling off all the layers we use to protect or hide ourselves.

What will remain ? And with what is left, what will you do ? What composition will you make ? What is your story to tell ? What will or would you leave in the box ?

 

It is about unicity versus universality. About our layers. About the choices we make and the final result of these choices.

 

With a limited range of geometric shapes (boxes) and colors, I created my inner world.

Be welcome.

 

Opening of my solo exhibition on Feb. 9th at 20h.

W O R K S H O P 2 0 1 8 !!!

In de eerste workshop begeleid ik je van ontwerp tot gietmal om je eigen kommetje of kopje te maken. 

In een tweede workshop leer je een mal voor je eigen ontbijtbord te maken. 

Op het einde van elke serie lessen ga je telkens naar huis met een mal van je eigen ontwerp en kan je zelf aan de slag. Na de twee series heb je dus alles in huis om je eigen *ontbijtset* te maken.
Ik geef aan mijn cursisten ook de kans om hun eerste resultaten bij mij te laten glazuren en bakken. 

Elke workshop bestaat uit 4 lessen.

WORKSHOP 1 : een gietmal voor een *kopje/kommetje*.

WORKSHOP 2 : een gietmal voor een *dessertbord*

De workshops gaan enkel door indien er voor elke serie minimum 4 inschrijvingen zijn. Het maximum aantal deelnemers is 5 personen. Dus het blijft sowieso een gezellig klein groepje zodat ik iedere cursist voldoende intens kan begeleiden.

Ben je hiervoor geïnteresseerd en wil je er meer over weten ? Stuur me een mailtje en ik bezorg je alle informatie. info@ilonavandenbergh.be

SUMMER STOCK & SAMPLE SALE

HUNGRY FOR DESIGN ? IN MILAN ?

This year I will attend with 3 projects at the first Milan HUNGRYFORDESIGN-event, the first fuorisalone format in wich design merges with the food serving industry !

 

For the OnA tableware I created a total new look with fresh spring colors combined with the beauty of terracotta.

 

mOON, still a very successful design

 

And last but not least : S.ThING, a new design : 

 Is it a spoon, a scoop or a food pricker ? It is all of that !

It can be worn as a jewel on your finger while you're lounging around on that crazy party you're attending, stinging the most gorgeous snacks. Eating a bite becomes a sexy thing. S.ThING ! 

Handmade (by myself) of ultralight porcelain. It fits everyone !

WITH SThING THE PARTY IS ON !

 

'Anne Tack' is one of the shops where my work is sold. It is also one of those shops where I would love to have everything that she is selling...It's a mix of the most beautiful vintage pieces and honestly handcrafted pieces. Anne Tack is a master in finding and combining  these treasures. A must see when you visit Brussels. I promise you a warm welcome. Anne Tack, Kasteleinsplein, Elsene.
