Piet Stockmans: No China, by Piet Stockmans, Jo Rombouts

Piet Stockmans (1940) is one of the most famous Belgian designers and is also well known abroad. His whole life is all about porcelain, a material from which he explores the boundaries. The Piet Stockmansblauw, a color that he accidentally discovered during an experiment, always returns to his work. His poselle dishes are used by top restaurants at home and abroad. Stockmans was from 1966 to 1989 an industrial designer at the Royal Mosa porcelain factory in Maastricht. Between 1969 and 1998 he taught industrial design at the department of product design at the Stedelijk Hoger Instituut voor Visuele Kommunikatie en Vormgeving, the later Media & Design Academy in Genk and from 1983 to 1985 lecturer in ceramics design at the Dutch Design Academy Eindhoven. Since 1989 he has been a freelance designer. From 2010, Stockmans lives at the C-Mine site in Winterslag, Genk.
