The artisans and the craft
Chiel and Bea go back a long time. They met at the Amsterdam Academy of Art & Design in the eighties. They were trained as art teachers in the techniques of fine art and painting. Subsequently they moved on to and specialized in decorating ceramics.
Their mastery of hand-painting ceramics has grown over the years, while studying many international styles and practicing multiple application techniques. The signature 1000graden tile panels made by Bea and Chiel, are the result of years of experience in painting and decorating. They have made tile panels for many kitchens, home interiors, restaurants, and shops.
1000graden is the ceramic design company of Bea Peters and Chiel Kleipool. 1000graden is also Dutch for 1000 degrees, the Celsius temperature of the ceramic kiln for melting glazes.
Design: All our panels begin as a handmade sketch, that is than carefully painted with ceramic glazes, using a special technique that emulates water colors.
We design the proposed final product. Upon request we can visualize the proposed design or panel placed in its intended location.
Painting: The final artwork is painted directly on the glazed tiles of different sizes and brands.
