Foekje Fleur

After graduating in both Design and Fine Arts, Foekje Fleur found her way by making objects that are functional and yet, give space for thought. Her attractive and colourful designs seem playful at first sight but are in fact inspired by serious topics like environmental pollution and animal rights.

Bottle vases are inspired by a collection of plastic trash from the river Maas in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. After reading about plastic soup, she started looking more carefully at the river running through her home town and found plastic waste that had been accumulating there since the 1960s.

By creating durable colourful porcelain bottle vases copies of the material she finds, Foekje is trying to spread awareness of this growing problem. The colourful porcelain bottle vases are available in a variety of shapes and colours which makes a really nice rainbow!
