Maia Ming Fong was born in Hawaii, grew up in Italy and is currently based in Barcelona. She has been a designer/maker her whole life and has a particular passion for ceramics. Maia studied Product Design at Stanford University and has helped numerous companies create amazing products.
When her children were young, Maia took a pottery class with them and re-entered the world of ceramics. She began forming small pieces on the wheel and then adapting them by hand. This led to group and solo exhibits and greater demand for her work. Eventually, Maia began using slip cast molds to reproduce her ceramic designs in small series.
Inspired by her Asian and Scandinavian heritage, Maia’s lifestyle ceramics focus on simple pleasures in the home. Contemporary classics, with a tactile and whimsical flair, her ceramic designs are simple, functional and beautiful
Beauty. Texture. Whimsy. Simple pleasures in daily rituals.
