Rinke Joosten

Studio Rinke Joosten is a Netherlands-based design studio located in Rotterdam. As an artist and ceramicist, Rinke tends to experiment with materials and production methods to create unique and authentic works of art. This is not only about the end result, but also about the process leading up to the work.


A symbiosis between materials and careful execution of the craft process are sought. Rinke intends to come up with interesting interventions without pushing the material in a certain direction. This raises interesting questions about the role of inefficiency within the production process, which is more based on efficiency. She values the unprecedented over the mass produced, and eternity over time.
