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 !

 

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.

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 PARIS, Eléphant Paname, 09/2014, organized by Visit Flanders

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.
