Delft blue vases series The Blue Bicycle
Delft blue is typically Dutch and that of course also applies to the bike. Together with designer Sylvain Tegroeg Heinen Delft Blue realized a series of 3 vases with the name "The Blue Bicycle". Fresh, contemporary vases that honour the Delft blue tradition. The blue Bicycle vases are all 21 cm high, but differ in shape: The Blue Bicycle nr. 1 is a belly vase, no. 2 a wide shoulder vase and nr. 3 is a cylinder vase. Both with and without flowers fresh and beautiful vases. The blue Bicycle vases are "stand-alone" beautiful but also great as a combination.
Delft blue, typically Dutch?
The origin of the world famous Delft earthenware dates back to early 1600. In the 17th century, the VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) ships brought not only spices back from China, but also blue on white decorated porcelain. This porcelain quickly became very popular with the wealthy of that time such as the European royal houses. When the import came to a standstill by a civil war in China, the Dutch pottery manufacturers grabbed their chance and started the imitation of this blue and white decorated porcelain. This was the start of the Dutch production of Delft blue, now known worldwide as a purely Dutch product.
The Heinen Delft blue story
It starts at the end of 70 years when Jaap Heinen who draws and paints in Japanese and Chinese Imari style, also starts to paint in in Delft blue. In Putten, he begins a small atelier in which he also glazes and bakes. His son Jorrit joins. When - starting from 2007 - the demand for hand-painted Delft blue falls back, Jaap and Jorrit open an own factory in China which produces in Putten designed earthenware, focused on the souvenir market. The hand painting, however, remains a passion and it grows again in popularity since 2015. Employing the best designers, decorators and ceramic-technicians and with love for the centuries-old Delft blue craft, Heinen brings Delft blue tradition and innovation: Creating new traditions.
