For the past 7 years Foekje collaborated together with Middle Kingdom, a company led by a husband-wife team, the Jias. They combine their love for Chinese history with their passion for traditional craft. In their Jingdezhen workshop, they give a contemporary voice to classic porcelain techniques. Inspired by history and other artistic disciplines, Middle Kingdom’s craftsmen remain faithful to the materials and their artistry.
People all over the world were inspired by the Bottle Vase project and have cleaned beaches at home or on holiday. The world collection consists of bottles from all over the world and is being handmade near Aveiro in Portugal. The collection may expand as long the plastic soup problem exists.
Each year one or two limited editions are launched that are hand-numbered and come in a special handmade collectors box. This series is handmade near Aveiro, Portugal. Please keep on sharing pictures of the vases you find during beach cleanups, on Instagram and tag @foekje_fleur so I can easily find you. The best entries will be invited to send in their bottles and will receive a copied porcelain trophy! Good luck!
