About us

Roelofs & Rubens story

Over a decade of fabulous handmade ceramics

Established in 2006 by Berkshire-based designer Piet van den Beuken and her husband, Monty Abram, Roelofs & Rubens is a successful supplier of handmade and hand-decorated ceramic hanging decorations.

Piet studied Architectural Design at St Joost Academy of Art in Breda and Graphic Design at the Rietveld Academy of Art in Amsterdam. Through her own love of ceramics, she discovered a gap in the market for something that was both contemporary in design and beautifully unique.

Being Dutch, Piet admits that the much-loved Delft Blue of Holland holds a special place in her heart and has influenced her to work with the distinctive blue and white palette.

‘Our fabulous decoration collections are all handmade and hand decorated to an excellent standard. The striking blue and white colour scheme will complement your home whilst our original and exciting designs bring a fresh look’.

Working with a small team, the range has grown and now includes a much loved Christmas Collection and a Bespoke Collection that celebrates famous landmarks, buildings and many other places of interest.
