Roelofs & Rubens

ArtForm: City Showcase Markets

Situated in the West Berkshire/North Hampshire area, Roelofs & Rubens is company in a shed, designing and producing handmade and hand painted blue and white tableware, tiles and decorations.

‘I believe it’s time for something more contemporary on the old Welsh dresser’ says Piet van den Beuken, Roelofs & Rubens’ founder, co-owner and designer, ‘and because of the blue and white philosophy - same blue pigments on all wares - our design ranges can be mixed and matched with each other and with the more traditional patterns we all know so well.’
Being Dutch, Piet admits that the much-loved Delft Blue of the Netherlands holds a special place in her heart and has influenced her to work with the distinctive blue and white palette, whilst her original and exciting designs bring a fresh Continental look to this collection of quality English earthenware.

The company only uses materials sourced in the UK, essential in their opinion about how to produce tableware these days and to honour the history of English ceramics.

Roelofs & Rubens are selling their wares worldwide, the Museum 0f London has Roelofs & Rubens Royal Wedding Delftware in their collection and Roelofs & Rubens are suppliers of the National Trust and others.

Piet van den Beuken studied Architectural Design at St Joost Academy of Art Breda and Graphic Design at the Rietveld Academy of Art Amsterdam.
