She is the owner of Mia Maya Design, where she develops and produces artisanal ceramic design products for both the commercial and domestic markets. At her workshop in Copenhagen, all the products are produced by hand, using techniques such as slip-cast, hand throwing, and brush painting. Through experiments with materials and techniques, she develops forms, glazes, and decorations which are based on a simple and functional idiom. “When I teach, I love passing on the techniques I have learned over time. I find it very interesting to see what kind of results can spring out of an otherwise traditional technique when applying a creative and innovative approach. Also, I find it inspiring to follow the journey that my students go through when learning about ceramics, whether they are complete beginners or working at a more advanced level”.
