MEET THE MAKER
Since 2014, Brenda van Roekel has been designing porcelain interior objects such as lampshades, tableware and home accessories for her label Studio Amber Isabel. Her studio is located in the middle of the woods of Alphen and because of this direct contact, nature is a recurring source of inspiration. Organic shapes are the main starting point in her work, which is expressed in a minimalist style with refined details and finish. With her porcelain products, Studio Amber Isabel brings peace to the chaos of everyday life. They easily merge into an interior that is constantly in motion.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEEDBACKS?
‘Crafting Business made me reflect on my work for my label Studio Amber Isabel. It was nice to be in a group with other creators. I discovered that there are many similarities: not only about getting the best out of your practice, but also the stumbling blocks we encounter. It was very good to take a close look at my own company in a number of fixed days and to see where the areas for improvement lie. Often many open doors, but at the same time a confrontation of action points. Speakers from different angles entered into a dialogue with us as makers and provided information from their own expertise, which was very interesting. The Crafting Business program gave in some ways what I missed in art school 10 years ago.’
