Marie designs functional ceramics for each and every one who love simplicity in life, make their home a warm place always opened to family and friends, value the nobleness of natural materials, enjoy the beauty of imperfection.
Eight years living in Asia enriched Marie with new perspectives and cultures. Witnessing people make time for what matters most to them – celebrate deities, caring for elders – convinced Marie of the importance of slowing down, take a few minutes pause from the daily stress of work and personal obligations.
Another four years living in San Francisco allowed Marie to experiment materials and explore self-expression. She’s convinced of the importance of the creation process, as much as the finished product.
The birth of ATMA ceramics is the story of these strands coming together, forming in a collection that is decorative yet functional, an oasis for the overstimulated senses; a celebration of ethnic design enhanced with understated simplicity.
“Time is the main component when working with clay. My ceramics are filled with it so that you can make time for you and your loved ones (plants included!)”
