Groningen clay bowls in tourist information centre shop

Unusual clay bowls by the ceramicist Wim de Boer are a recent addition to the items on sale in the shop in the tourist information centre (VVV) in Groningen city centre.

The bowls are made from Groningen clay - what else would you expect? Ceramicist Wim de Boer from Winsum visited various Groningen villages in person to dig up the clay. He used this clay to make unusual Groningen clay bowls. The use of different types of clay gives the bowls different colours, making each individual bowl unique. The bowls cost 5 euros each.

Tourists will also find great souvenirs, T-shirts, postcards and much more in the shop. Of course the tourist information centre is also the place to go for extensive information about the city and province of Groningen.
