Chantal got the art-loving DNA from her grandmother, Adrienne Dupont, daughter of the former Dupont industrial pottery bakery in Poperinge.

The activity of this family business officially dates back to the 16th century but later foundation works unearthed potshards from the 14th century.

Passionate about drawing and painting since childhood, Chantal found a true passion in ceramics a few years ago. 

Continually educating herself in Art School and in workshops with renowned artists, Chantal aims to immerse herself in contemporary ceramics, get to know artists personally, understand their techniques and share knowledge about the lengthy and risky process from concept to realization.

Frock Gallery is a contemporary art gallery founded in 2019 by Annelies Deltour and artist Matt Frock. The gallery is free to explore and experience local and international art. 

Each exhibition is the result of an intense collaboration between the gallery and the artist. Every exhibition begins with the artist’s inspiration and ends with the viewer in awe before the work. Matt and Annelies love to collaborate with everyone at the beginning, middle and end of the process – from artist to collector – It’s the people that make the magic!

Inge studied ceramics for 12 years and dreamed of starting her own studio. In February 2015, she got started with her own kiln and some turntables. Most of her ceramics consist of everyday tableware, stoneware and porcelain made on a wheel.

Inge strives to make beautiful things that are appealing and bring joy to people. Her years of expertise and experience led her to teach courses and workshops. Her studio has a pleasant atmosphere and is comfortable to work in. On the 1st floor above the ceramics studio is the studio store with a large selection of ceramics.

“Where art and furniture come together in the setting of a restored hop warehouse.

The Vandevoorde house was initially an exclusive furniture house that specialized (and is) in English furniture. In 2006, a section was added: art. Here you will find more than 100 pieces of figurative painting, bronze and ceramics. Hence the appropriate baseline: Art Meets Furniture.

“In this way, art and furniture are presented together in the four-story space.”
