Bontjes van Beek, Jan

(1899 - 1969)

Jan Bontjes van Beek was a German ceramist, sculptor and dancer. He studied pottery from 1921 to 1923 and opened his workshop in Fischerhude. After the War he worked as a professor in East-Berlin, but he moved back to West Germany in 1950 and started working for Alfred Ungewiß.

His daughter Cato was a member of the Rote Kapelle resistance group during the War.

For nearly two decades, the collection of Bloomberry has been driven by the cultural reference between architecture, art and design.

The quality of our collection is reflected in the sophistication of craftsmanship and the character of the scars of time. Our restoration workshops are built around the same principal and work to the highest degree of craftsmanship.

Bloomberry is housed in a former textile factory and is located near Maastricht, in the south of The Netherlands. Within an hour of Antwerp and Cologne. Within two hours from Amsterdam and four hours from Paris.

Bloomberry offers worldwide shipping.
