Welcome lover of ceramic art

Dear ceramic art lover, how nice that you are visiting my “DFB-ceramics” website. Here you will find information on contemporary ceramic art, figurative stoneware and inspiration for your home and garden.

I cordially invite you to view my handmade ceramics, read the “Ceramics Gang” blog and visit my online Etsy shop.

Keramiek kunst DFB-keramiek

DFB, who is that?

First let me introduce myself. I am Daniël (F.) Bende, a Dutch ceramic artist with a passion for traditional glazes and hand thrown shapes. I make figurative human and animal sculptures made on the potter’s wheel, under the trade mark DFB-keramiek (DFB-ceramics).

My sculptures are unique, handmade and finished with oxides and self developed glazes and slips. If you want to buy an original handcrafted ceramics artwork, discuss an assignment or view my works “for real”, please contact me so I can advise you personally. More information can be found on the sales link.

DFB-ceramics, a registered trade marks

After my graduation at the ceramics institute SBB in Gouda (1998-2001) I began working as an independent ceramic artist.

In 2006 I published my Dutch website under the name DFB-keramiek (DFB-ceramics). Since 2008 I am also registered under this name at the Chamber of Commerce. This website has been redesigned several times and since 2016 I am working on translating this site and the blogs in English.

Blog “Ceramics Gang”, read and reply!

Since 2012 I publish regularly the now well-known Dutch blog about ceramic art under the name  “Keramiek Bende”. Not all blogs are translated in English yet, but we are working on it.

“Let me start by saying that your blog and website looks great and I regularly read it”

“I enjoy your blog! It is enjoyable to read”

“Looks great Daniel, what a nice blog …”

I hope my Englisch readers will like the translated content, I love to hear from you…
