Creatrice ceramics was founded in 2021 by Eline Mathe.

Creatrice ceramics is solely run by me.
Working from a belief that the technique should follow the design, I create timelessly modern objects characterised by my background in fashion.

With love and dedication to craftsmanship, each item is single handedly made and intended to be treasured. ~

My focus will be to provide you with high quality ceramics, that I hope you will cherish for life.

Sustainable Ceramics

When thinking and making for Creatrice Ceramics, I am looking towards a realistic and thoughtful way to endorse sustainability, as well as to keep myself engaged as an artist. My items are meant to be versatile while still aesthetically pleasing.
Working from a belief that the environmental impact of a product is just important as its visual aesthetic, I recycle every unfired used clay to make sure that there is as minimal waste possible.
But not only the clay, also packaging plays a role.
From the box, wrapping paper and also the chips to fill the space for optimal shock absorption, are not only made from recycled paper and polystryrene it's also CFK certified and bleach free.
Next to that you can recycle everything from the packaging, except the sticker

I hope you’ll like what you see and be inspired by the timelessly modern objects and passion for creating that go into these ceramics.

Please take a look at my online store or check out the custom made page to let your own imagination come to life, and maybe we’ll be creating something together!.

This is me

a little backstory
Born in Enschede, the Netherlands, I grew up surrounded by art. I was inspired by my grandfather, a painter, and my uncles, who where painters and were I later found out, a potter as well.
I was captured by my grandfathers paintings very early on, watching him paint made me want to explore my own creativity. But my parents divorced at the age of 8 and therefor, I lost contact with my father and grandfather.

I continued to explore my creativity by drawing and painting throughout my adolescence when my interest shifted dramatically in my twenties when I discovered the world of fashion.
This new world awakened a deeper obsession to create, I saw possibilities that were never there before, it opened up my eyes in new ways of being creative. It led me to prestigious internships at Bas Kosters, Viktor&Rolf, and Iris van Herpen with her I started working after graduating, equipping me with a unique perspective and skillset.

Having taken that path, I didn't start working as a ceramic artist until 2021, but my background in Fashion is playing a crucial role in everything I do.

Working from my home studio in Arnhem, I experiment with form and function, exploring the craft of pottery with the element of fashion.
I work with clay by sculpting and wheel throwing and balance between these two opposites as I believe the technique should follow the design. I then add glazing and sometimes multiple layers of fabric. It's like I’m painting with glaze and fabric. Ceramics are my canvas.

Embracing ceramics has taught me the beauty of unpredictability, helping me let go of my inherent need for control.
My focus now is simply to let creativity flourish, finding immense possibilities within the unpredictability of my craft.
