Henriette Duckert amazes any ceramic lover with her very 'one of af kind' vessels. Her ceramics are full of spikes. These are sharp, and are placed neatly side by side on the ceramics and form a round pattern. Firstly, the ceramics are hand thrown by the ceramicist. Hereafter the spikes are formed and carefully placed on the ceramics. The spiked vases, lidded jars and bowls are very popular and they are not long on our webshop, before being shipped off to our happy ceramic customers. The reason is pretty clear. Henriette Duckert makes ceramic tableware for everyday use, but the ceramics are far for 'normal'. In fact, we have never seen anything like it. The spiked design is very gorgeous and handmade with the ultimate perfection.
