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*.
- serie 1 : Donderdagavond- VOLZET
- serie 2 : Vrijdagvoormiddag - 9.30u tot 12.00u - 9/16/23/30 maart. NOG 2 PLAATSJES BESCHIKBAAR

WORKSHOP 2 : een gietmal voor een *dessertbord*
- serie 3 : Donderdagavond- 19u tot 21.30u - 19/26 april en 3/17 mei NOG SLECHTS 1 PLAATSJE VRIJ
- serie 4 : Vrijdagvoormiddag - 9.30u tot 12.00u - 20/27 april en 4/18 mei. ON HOLD TOT SERIE 2 VOLZET IS.

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.

With some leftovers I made some plates and bowls to use myself. And actually this is my favorite tableware at this moment.




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 !



when the sun makes poetry

While I was busy at my desk, the sun was playing with one of my wall pieces STILL. Together they make poetry.

Beauty is everywhere if you open your mind for it. 


SOON SOON SOON ! I will attend this event with my work (lots of new things !) SAVE THE DATE !

More news will follow.


MOON and the world

Since the DEZEEN-article appeared, MOON goes worldwide : China, Spain, Portugal, UK, Australia...

I'm amazed and very happy with all this love for MOON.

Today I received a beautiful email from the two ladies of Detail Collective from Australia. I read the article they wrote about me an felt me completely understood. Very heartwarming. I love to share the article with you :

Ilona Van den Bergh is a Belgian ceramicist who aims to imbue her work with 'an atmosphere of serenity'.   The result is a beautiful collection of work that we can't wait to show you...

MOON discovered by design magazine DEZEEN

Thank you so much DEZEEN !

on the move

Op zaterdag 13 december open ik mijn pop-up atelier/shop in hartje Mechelen. Kom gerust langs om een kijkje te nemen, te zien wat er in de aanbieding is of van een glaasje mee te genieten.

Graag een seintje vooraf.

EXHIBITION in MILAN where I received the YATZER-LABEL for my design ONA, best of Milan 2014

'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.
