Our philosophy

Thank you for taking an interest in our work.

DENK Keramik was established by Franz Denk in 1964 as a family-run company in Coburg, Bavaria. We have remained based in Coburg and work only here. The company has been in the family for two generations now and is currently run by the son Fabian Denk.

We as a craft-based enterprise focus on people and the natural ceramic materials. Our items have been deliberately manufactured to display the traces of individual craftsmanship and the beauty of ceramic material. Every item manufactured contains the knowledge and passion of our staff. The best products are only possible if you have superbly trained and motivated employees. We only employ craftsmen that we ourselves have trained.

Our product philosophy can be summed up in three words: Quality, Usefulness, and Beauty.

We only want to offer our customers the best quality. We feel an obligation towards mankind and the sustainability of nature and as a result neither offer trendy and short-lived things nor products designed to wear out. Our customer can be certain that in buying from DENK, s/he is acquiring a value-retaining and unique product.

Every DENK product must also always have a particularly high utilitarian value for the customer. The wax burner can be taken as an example to illustrate this philosophy: The wax burner provides light like a fireplace and is not extinguished by strong wind – an ideal combination for mood-setting garden lighting. Candle remains serve as fuel – a cost-effective and resource-husbanding fuel. The permanent wick need not be replaced – there are no follow-on costs.

The authentic shape that complements the material will provide a lot of pleasures for the trained eye and the receptive spirit. Our products are designed to exude quality and beauty. DENK has received many national and international awards and certificates.

Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. We would be delighted if you decide to purchase one of our products.

Kind regards

Jutta and Fabian Denk
