The Studio Piet Stockmans in Genk, Belgium is located in an area of the old coal mining industry.  An industrial designer who worked for years for the now defunct Royal Mosa in Maastricht, Stockman opened his own atelier in 1987.  The studio Piet Stockman is now run by his daughter Widukind, producing exquisite fine porcelain pieces.  Piet Stockman himself now concentrates on unique art pieces, museum exhibitions, publications, and installations.
