The Gouda Pottery List

The Verwoerd Ceramics Studio (1949-1976) was certainly not the only Gouda pottery that has been started or revived after World War 2. Both the end of the war and a newly sprung supply of affordable electrically heated pottery kilns have caused a brief but impressive revival of the Gouda pottery industry. Today most companies have ceased to exist, although there are some exceptions - companies that found a solution for survival in the post-handpainting era - such as Montagne Aardewerk, Royal Goedewaagen, and Schoonhoven Keramiek. This section presents an overview of some 150 predominantly small potteries that have been active after 1945 in the Gouda region, i.e. the area originally covered by the Gouda Chamber of Commerce, and that includes Gouda, Gouderak, Haastrecht, Moordrecht, Schoonhoven, Reeuwijk, Waddinxveen, Boskoop, and Bodegraven.

This graph shows the approximate distribution of Gouda potteries over the years 1940-2009. The steep fall in the mid 70's is caused by the "Sanering", a scheme operated by the Commodity Board for the Pottery Industry aimed at sanitizing the ailing sector. Small pottery owners that closed down, received a monthly allowance provided that they would not engage in the pottery business again.

Although some of larger plateel factories, like Zenith, and Schoonhoven, have ventured into the production of Delft brooch panels, only a few companies made it their core business. Van Katwijk, who left Plateelbakkerij Schoonhoven after the war, pioneered this in 1946. Unfortunately his untimely death in 1952 would affect the future course of events. Although the workshop continued under the name Van Katwijk, and kept the VK signature, its output quality varied a lot. Verwoerd who admired Frans van Katwijk, and who held similar quality principles, had by then made an excellent name in this niche market. While the Verwoerd workshop remained faithful to the production of high quality hand painted Delft medallions until its closure in 1976, some other companies choose price or quantity for their main selling points. The Van Katwijk Studio is known to have produced screen printed Delft stones as early as 1956. Even Porceletti, that since long held a labor-saving approach towards painting, had moved fully to transfer printing by 1968.

Please be advised that it is not allowed to use the information presented on this site without written permission and proper acknowledgement. This list of Gouda potteries has been compiled on the basis of the VCO archives, and additional fact finding. Our research is deeply indebted to Ron Tasman and his inspiring publication "The Gouda Pottery Book" (ISBN 987 90 76940 36 6). Verwoerd Ceramics Online is extremely grateful for the kind permission of Mr.Tasman to build on his research. We also like to thank Friggo Visser, senior editor of the GPB and curator of the Keramisch Museum Goedewaagen in Nieuw Buinen, and Gouda decorator and pipe maker Kees Moerings for their helpful comments. Even so, we don't pretend that our list of Gouda region potteries is either complete or perfect. There is always more to be rediscovered. If you have any information that could help improving the list, please contact the VCO helpdesk
