Maria De Haan

London ceramicist Maria De Haan, is half Spanish and half English. She was raised in the UK and moved to the mountain Village of Deià in Mallorca in 2015. After discovering her love of clay in London in 2005, she pursued her passion and quickly followed with a ceramics diploma in London, apprenticeships, tuition under renowned potter Simon Leach, and also a 2 year residency under Mike Goddard on the tiny island of Bequia in the West indies. With growing success and confidence, Maria then returned to set up her own studio in Mallorca.
Her work has been heavily influenced by her travels, mostly by the Japanese aesthetic of the “wabi-sabi”, which is based on asymmetry, irregularity, simplicity and modesty. She also finds inspiration in nature, such as rock textures and the sea.
