Season With Stegosaurus

"Who says you can't play with your food?," asks Maia Ming, the maker of these adorable Stegosaurus shakers. Like a lot of kids, Maia's were budding paleontologists, so one long winter she amused them (and herself) by making little dinosaur figurines from clay. Years later, she adapted those snow day creations into sweet stoneware salt and pepper shakers. They're slip-cast in molds but retain the playful feel of Maia"s original, homemade pals. Glazed in white (salt) and bright blue (pepper), they make smile-worthy gifts for any dino lover. Spices not included. Handmade in China.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Maia Ming Fong was born in Hawaii, studied Product Design at Stanford University, and currently lives and works in Barcelona. She has been designing and making things, especially in clay, for as long as she can remember. When her children were young, Maia took a pottery class with them and re-immersed herself into the world of ceramics. She began making small pieces that were formed on the wheel and then adapted by hand. This led to group and solo exhibits and more demand for her work. So Maia began to use slip cast molds to reproduce her ceramic designs in small series. Inspired by her Asian and Scandinavian heritage, Maia’s lifestyle ceramics enhance simple pleasures in the home. Contemporary classics, with a tactile and whimsical flair, her ceramic designs are beautifully simple and functional.
