Maia Ming Designs

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

– Vincent van Gogh

I have been a designer/maker my whole life with a particular passion for ceramics. After studying Product Design at Stanford University I helped numerous companies create products I’m still very proud of.

When my children were young, I took a pottery class with them and re-entered the world of ceramics. I began forming small pieces on the wheel and then adapting them by hand. This led to group and solo exhibits. As demand for my work grew I started using slip cast molds to reproduce my designs in small-run series.

My work is certainly inspired by my Asian and Scandinavian heritage. I focus on making contemporary classics with simple, whimsical flair. 

I was born in Hawaii, grew up in Italy and currently live and create in Barcelona, Spain.

I hope you enjoy my work.
