    About Lalief and its ceramic urns

    Committed, creative and passionate are words that suit me, Lienke, the face behind Lalief! With love and attention I make various types of ceramic urns. Urns allow you to store and cherish the ashes of a beloved person or animal.

    My favorite memories

    I’ve always been creative. We used to have a cupboard full of paper, markers, paint and clay at home. Our very own craft closet! Endlessly I crafted the cutest things with my mother and my sister. My creativity undoubtedly comes from my mother. For me, these crafting moments are some of the best memories I have of her. And a birthday, of course, was the ultimate time to get crafty. In the photo, I’m on the right; my sister had nicked my birthday chair.

    The search for appropriate ceramic urns

    Never before had it occurred to me to really do something with this creativity, until my mother passed away in 2014. I was 19 years old at the time. We have personally noticed how difficult it is to find a matching ceramic urn. My dad, sister and I were looking for something light and modern. Not an eye-catching big pot where you are constantly reminded of the death of your loved one, but a subtle and light urn, matching the interior and our mother. It took all three of us six months to find something that met our needs.

    A bright spot in a difficult time

    Ik startte in 2019 met Lalief om voor anderen wél die subtiele, lichte en passende urn te mogen maken. Om zo voor een klein lichtpuntje te kunnen zorgen in een ontzettend moeilijke en verdrietige tijd. Ik vind het enorm bijzonder als mensen na een lange zoektocht bij mij terechtkomen en hier vinden wat ze zoeken. De as wordt soms jarenlang in de kast bewaard tot het eindelijk dat verdiende plekje krijgt. Ik gun de overledene dat speciale plekje. En dat is precies de reden waarom ik Lalief ben begonnen. Om voor anderen wel die persoonlijke keramische urn te mogen maken. Alle keramische urnen bekijk je hier

    Fun facts about me

    Annually I sponsor items for the Star Book Foundation

    The Star Book Foundationsends out star mail around the anniversary to parents who must miss their child(ren). With this, the Star Book Foundation wants to give parents some love and warmth on this sad day. Lalief is grateful to be able to contribute to this as a sponsor.

    You won’t find me in my studio, you’ll find me in the vegetable garden

    In my vegetable garden, I enjoy growing my own vegetables, fruits and flowers. In addition to the plants in my vegetable garden, I am also incredibly fond of houseplants.

    I regularly visit a war grave

    Many war graves in the Netherlands are still regularly visited by surviving relatives, but for a great many there are no longer any relatives. These graves are available for adoption. For example, I have adopted a war grave at the Field of Honor in Loenen where I regularly lay flowers.

    I love ice cream – even in the winter

    Besides that, I really enjoy the little things, like walking with the dog, baking cakes, walking around the market, watching movies, reading books and chatting with girlfriends.
