This Ceramic represents a tradition of Benedictine craftsmanship. All of our ceramic pieces are 100 % handmade. Variations in clay and color are natural. Each piece is unique. Father Maur van Doorslaer, O.S.B. is the designer of this ceramic creation
Fr. Maur was born Etienne van Doorslaer in France in 1925. He grew up with three brothers and three sisters in Flanders, Belgium. His family were farmers and later flower growers. Beginning in 1942, he spent seven years studying in the Decorative Arts Department of Sint-Lucasinstituut in Ghent. He drew, sketched, painted and studied architecture and sculpture.
For 36 years, Father has spent five months (May to October) a year designing ceramics.
