1000graden is the ceramic design company of Bea Peters and Chiel Kleipool. 1000graden is also Dutch for 1000 degrees, the Celsius temperature of the kiln for melting glazes.
In 1981 Bea Peters exhibited art tiles in the art gallery ‘De Praktijk’ in Amsterdam. Her creations were a smashing succes and were sold out immediately.
This sparked her enthusiasm and she decided to learn more about ceramics, with a focus on glazing and decoration. A very inspiring and beautiful world revealed itself to her, from single decorated tiles to complete wall coverings with tiles. This was the start of a never ending love for hand painted tiles from all over the world. Inspired by this, she started her own brand.
Five years ago, Chiel Kleipool joined the company.
Chiel and Bea go back a long time. They met at the Amsterdam Academy of Art & Design back in the eighties. They were trained as art teachers in the techniques of fine art and painting. Subsequently they moved on to and specialised 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, are the result of years of experience in painting and decorating. Together they have made tile panels for a substantial number of kitchens, home interiors, restaurants, and shops.
