About Maia Ming Fong : Maia Ming Fong was born in Honolulu and currently works in Barcelona. She studied Product Design at Stanford University and then worked for many years as an art director and design consultant. Her designs have won awards and been published internationally. (www.maiaming.com) With growing demand for her ceramic work, Maia began reproducing her designs in series. Modern classics, with a tactile and whimsical flair, Maia Ming Designs offers a selection of ceramic table wares produced by artisans in Spain, Vietnam and Portugal. Like their creator, Maia’s ceramic designs are an aesthetic and philosophical fusion of Asian and Scandinavian cultures.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Maia Ming Fong is aesthetically and symbolically re-defining products between Asian and Scandinavian cultures.
