A passion for making products by hand and learning a material and production method is driving Patrick Hartog to design new products. His material of choice is ceramics, shaping it by slip casting. When designing new products the main focus are materials and production techniques. Learning about the production technique and materials is essential in creating these objects, this is why Patrick spend his past years learning about ceramics and slip casting. Inspiration for his products are these materials and production techniques itself.
Patrick Hartog studied industrial design in Delft and The Hague, finishing his studies graduating at Richard Hutten design studio in Rotterdam. After graduation he worked and works in various industrial design companies in The Netherlands. Now based in Rotterdam he started working on his own projects.
