This vermilion red coffee table was produced by Amphora, Belgium. Ceramist Rogier Vandeweghe founded the company together with his wife and ceramic painter Myranna Pyck in the early 1960s. They produced ceramic vases, tiles and tables with strong colors and different types of glazing. Before Amphora, Rogier Vandeweghe ran Perignem together with his brother Laurent. This table dates from the mid-1960s and is an example of the bright color and glazing used.

This one-off coffee table by the Belgian artist Rogier Vandeweghe was produced in his own ceramic workshop located in Bruges in the mid 1950s. The hand-formed tiles are finished with a chromium red glaze. The firing of this specific color required a very precise temperature, as over-heating would turn the glaze to black. The table has a nice wooden frame and four black metal legs.
