Our Creator Jonas De Knock took over from his father a few years ago, but Carlo De Knock is still helping out in the atelier. When you enter their atelier you're greeted by a beautiful tile room, it's immediately clear, these guys have clay running through their veins. Ceramics are a passion, a way of life almost.

In this case the 'glaze fired' stage is added to create the great designs and colours.
