Pure Belgian


Those who are following my blog since a few years, will absolutely have read my earlier blogpost about the Belgian artisan Dirk Mortier.

Dirk designs and creates beautiful wooden rural outbuildings, home extensions, fences and accessories, all related to the traditional Flemish country outdoor living and landscape architecture.

Dirk’s father was an architect and painter and painted the idyllic landscapes and farms of the Flemish Ardennes. Due to his father’s paintings, Dirk’s passion for the traditional Flemish landscape architecture was born. He now continues his father’s work in a three-dimensional way.

Designing wooden constructions, fences, etc, Dirk opts for simple and pure concepts without useless decorations, going back to the authentic, essential use.

The construction is done with authentic tools and machines.

Behind Dirk Mortier’s realisations of scenic beauty lies a profound story of craft, practise and culture.

Dirk’s workshop is based in Everbeek-Beneden, a village in the Flemish Ardennes with its magnificent landscape. His home is only a few steps away from our home, and every time we walk around the orchards of his property, we enjoy the beautiful wooden fences, all made by Dirk.

Even though Dirk is skilled in the construction of more than only fences and gates, today I want to show you some pictures of his beautiful hand made wooden fences. To see more pictures of his wooden constructions and accessories, please visit the photo gallery on his website here.

    These Flemish fences and gates by Dirk Mortier are gorgeous; they are a pieces of art. I have noticed them in photos before, and have loved them, but had know idea they were traditional Flemish landscape architecture. Charming! Thank you for sharing this artist work.
