Chef Vanja van der Leeden and her husband/the photographer Remko Kraaijeveld did come on my way and there was an immediate click. They are not only very nice people, but they also create beautiful work together. She is his muse and cooks & writes like no other. He catches her talent in pixels, razor sharp and full of passion, whereby the image immediately stimulates your senses !
When I understood that they were planning to create a new Indonesian cookbook, I immediately said YES to make the tableware for it. And so I created for their cookbook INDOROCK a special collection, all ‘one of a kinds’ and suited to serve the delicious recipes you ‘ll find in the book. Selamat Makan!
And what a surprise! On page 317 I ‘m present myself! My portrait made of course by Remko Kraaijeveld and the kind text which makes me shine by Vanja van der Leeden! What an honour! Not only for me myself, but also for the craft of the potter/ceramicist! Thanks Vanja and Remko!
