MEET THE MAKER
De Olde Kruyk, the company now owned by Alf Kurstjens, has been making ceramics for over 80 years. In the past with the turntable and nowadays also with the very latest techniques. He works with self-designed 3D ceramic printers and laser cutters. By means of recycling and repurposing, it burdens the earth as little as possible. De Olde Kruyk specializes in problem solutions and if that fails, connections are made with other artists and the right technicians.
‘Creating some dust when making our ceramics, doesn’t mean the ceramics we make are dusty.’
