Studio Hear Hear is a creative studio with a focus on handmade ceramics, woodwork and slow living.
The studio is run by Samuël and Rena, husband & wife, explorers and makers.
The wooden pieces at Studio Hear Hear are lovingly hand-crafted by Sam and Rena in their workshop.
Natural, simple and honest.
Hear Hear started out as a small online shop and blog in 2011 before expanding to a ‘tiny two story shop’ in Amsterdam in 2012. After three turbulent years founder Rena Noordermeer decided at the beginning of 2016 to close down the brick and mortar shop to continue as an online shop and creative studio where she worked on her ceramics and hosted workshops and events.
In Sept 2018 Sam and Rena moved from the Netherlands to Norway.
With nature as our inspiration, we believe that it is very important to focus on a sustainable way of working. 90% of the wood we use comes from our own forest and is collected by hand. All materials used in wrapping and packaging are either recycled or recyclable. We are committed to maintaining a sustainable practice.
Rena Noordermeer – ceramist, designer, woodworker, interior and plant aficionado.
“Whether it’s creating woodwork & ceramics, hosting workshops and events or collaborating with creatives and brands, I always try to add my easy-going aesthetic and drive to create things that are inspiring and feel-good. I don’t aim for perfection, I just want to connect with the homes and feelings of others by creating modern, simple and honest pieces.”
Samuël Dirksz – woodworker, entrepeneur, product manager, branding & social media.
“With a broad interest in what life and living has to offer, I’ve followed a variety of studies and worked in a wide area of expertise. My main interest is being curious and eager to learn more. In this search of development I’ve been working as an entrepreneur for over 25 years. For me, woodturning is more than just a craft, it’s a connection to my heritage and family line of skilled woodworkers and craftsman.”
