About AtelierNL

Nadine Sterk and Lonny van Ryswyck, founders of AtelierNL, both graduates of the Design Academy in Eindhoven, believe that we have become numb to the power of the substance that lies right beneath our feet. Together with their team they undertook an intensive research process in an effort to reconnect with the pre-industrial essence of Dutch design and connected with local landowners and farmers to sample and collect all manner of clay, and also conceptualized a product range. This established the groundwork for the duo’s design work; over the past 10 years, it has expanded its clay collection across the entire Netherlands to produce conceptual exhibition pieces, affordable crockery, natural pigments, and workshops that reconnect ordinary citizens to the soil.
