My fiancee loves this dish! It's good quality and fairly big so there's plenty of space to store things in it. Definitely get this, the seller was awesome and responsive too when we had questions. Plus the package came with lots of cute hand drawn art on it. Would definitely buy something again from them!

Received the plate and it was worth the wait! My son's girlfriend loved it! The seller wrote all over the package and drew pictures on it as well. It was a gift in itself! We have a joke about how little she eats and she just loved it! Hated to throw away the package.

Love this simple but perfect illustration. It arrived in great shape and serves as a gentle mandate to move away from the computer and get busy.

Cute animals, terrible puns and swearing
What do you get when you mix a translator with a bad sense of humour with some watercolours, ceramics and a bunch of bad puns? You get Studio Froezel.
Until the age of 22, I was utterly convinced froezel was a word. A froezel (pronounced froo-zel in English) was the Dutch word for ruffle, an embellishment. Until one day I had to look it up, and realised the word my mother had been using all my life wasn't actually real!
Studio Froezel is a way to work out some of my creative energy. As a freelance translator and subtitler, I sit behind a desk all day (interspersed with brief bouts of air guitar). At the end of the day, I need some time to... sit behind a desk and paint (interspersed with brief bouts of air guitar).
My biggest inspirations are my friends. They're the one who encouraged me to start Studio Froezel in the first place, and many of the products I make were first made as a gift to them, or because they needed a gift for someone else. They also share my dorky sense of humour, which is a great plus.
I get my best ideas while waiting (in waiting rooms, on hold on the phone, waiting for friends to show up because I am usually ridiculously early) or procrastinating (ignoring the pile of laundry that needs to be folded, doodling while I ponder over a hard sentence during my job as a translator, or about 2 hours after my bedtime).
All items are illustrated by hand, wrapped and shipped by me.

I will ship your package as soon as possible, at the cheapest rate possible. All purchases are shipped after the payment has come through.
