Art pottery Giethoorn Floramics is a short and beautiful walk from the center along the famous “Dorpsgracht”. The atelier is situated in a former stable of a 100 year old typical Giethoorn farmhouse. Take a picture at our “floramics” bridge and walk to the back of our house. Inge van Doornik is an emerging artist who makes unique and beautiful handthrown or sculptured ceramic objects. Her work is characterized by (Dutch) flowers, both sculptured and painted in the most sparkling, glazing colors. The pottery participated in the artistic Atelierroute 2019 and in the same year, more than 500 ceramic artists across the globe followed her work on Instagram. Typical prices range from 10 to 45 Euro.
