Joke BleysCeramic jewellery & home accessories

I used to make gifts for my friends and family which were mainly jewellery and ceramics. As the demand kept rising, I started doing it as a second occupation under the name J-oké. It is something that I love to do, especially the clay modelling.

At the moment I make mostly jewellery, dishes and ceramic light sculptures. Besides that I also work with Anna Grimal where we upcycle existing porcelain into something new.

My hand modelled shapes need to dry for three weeks before I put them in the oven for the first time. The shapes are organic as they are handmade, but I make sure that they are sleekly finished. After that I add a vintage touch with the glaze and then they go back in the oven for one last time.

What is your big dream?

Building my own house on a mountain or a hill with a beautiful view. I have already drawn up the rough plans. Now I just have to develop it further and find a way to make it reality.

How can one easily recognise your work?

Through the colour and design.

Which book or film had a lasting impact on you?

‘Things The Grandchildren Should Know’ by Mark Oliver Everett.

Tell us something that typifies you but that we do not already know... 

I am who I am. You can learn from failure and it's never too late to start again.
