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.
