Atelier NL are based in the Netherlands and spent a year collecting soil samples from all the farmers in Noordoostpolder region.

Using this clay, they have a range of ceramics that use local materials, use traditional ceramic functional shapes from the region and use contemporary styling. Similar to recent critical regionalist publications, they believe in utilising local materials to minimise the embodied energy present in their ceramics.
