A collection in the Japanese tradition
Passionate about Japanese culture, martial arts and the emblematic figure of the samurai, Michael Maio creates ceramic blades in the Japanese tradition. These pieces, initially decorative and of high craftsmanship, require a long elaboration time, consisting of several stages of drying and sanding to obtain a finished porcelain blade.
A young ceramist passionate about Japanese culture
Michael MAIO is a young ceramist who has been immersed in the popular and traditional culture of Japan since childhood. A country of contrasts par excellence, between ancestral tradition and the almost absolute modernity of its arts, it is from this paradoxical richness that Michael has been nourished to create his own ceramic universe.
Michael has chosen the traditional "zogan" technique, i.e. the inclusion of colored engobes in his porcelain which he decorates by hand. He works with white porcelain and a deliberately limited color palette. He also develops a collection of vases and bottles. A refined style with graphic or figurative motifs very modern.
