At the center of Mia Maya Design is the creative mind of Mia Maya Christophersen, who develops and produces all her products by hand in her Copenhagen workshop. Using traditional craft methods, each item is prepared and decorated by hand using casting, throwing and glazed brush patterns.
Design and inspiration
The design takes root in functional minimalism, although with the continuing theme of giving each product an individual and decorative ceramic character. The symbiosis between material, form and decoration is at the center of the finished piece.
The hand painted glaze patterns are simple in their graphic style, and tend to lead your mind back in time. The muted colours of the clay combined with the simple forms create a minimalistic, Scandinavian look. The Glaze patterns are Mia Maya Design's unique signature and, through this form of brush technique, each product is given it's own history. The collection has been developed with a mix & match ethos, meaning regardless of colour, pattern or shape all pieces go well together.
Artisanal products may vary slightly as they are hand made. Each product is lovingly cast, polished, glazed, decorated and ultimately sand washed by hand. The products are designed and produced in our workshop in Copenhagen, and all parts are dishwasher and microwave friendly
