Aude Van Ryn Portrait

Aude Van Ryn


Belgian illustrator and ceramicist Aude Van Ryn creates hand decorated ceramic pieces, which are simple in shape and feature semi-abstract designs and graphics – dots, line and geometric shapes – alongside plants, flowers and birds.

Aude works mainly in porcelain stoneware, which she decorates with underglaze using brushes, fingertips and sgraffito techniques, before dipping them in a transparent glaze. Read More

Each piece is unique. She particularly likes the playfulness of abstract shapes, drawing inspiration from Guidette Carbonnel, Pablo Picasso and sixties and seventies textiles designs by Marimekko.

Aude moved to London aged 21 to take up a place on the Illustration course at Central Saint Martins. She went on to study at the Royal College of Art and has been part of the Heart Illustration agency since 1998. In 2007 she started working in ceramics and now has a studio close to her home in Camden.
