Dutch potter whose Delft factory was well-known for its red stoneware imitations of South Chinese Yixing wares. In the 1670s the factory began to produce the earliest ceramic European teapots. They were based on Chinese designs, with a small body (enough to hold two cups of tea), a short spout and a loop handle. They were decorated in relief with Chinese motifs such as prunus.
