Love my new earrings. Very classy and go with everything. They are actually a little larger than I was imagining, which I’m happy with. Pretty quick shipping too considering it was international al.

Monika

My name is Monika and I am the designer and the sculptor behind Maapstudio. I was born in Zakopane, a ”magical place” surrounded by the Polish Tatra Mountains. The presence of the mountains nearly in my backyard had a hypnotic effect on my perceptions. It was in Zakopane that I created my first designs, mostly sculptures made in wood. From there I moved to Gdansk where I gained a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts and Ceramics. Living on the coast of the Baltic Sea completely changed my way of seeing objects, making me a keen observer of structure and tensions within material.

Whilst studying for my Master’s I found out that clay and me are the perfect match. After I graduated I moved to UK with my husband. Soon after that, I became a mum and many things changed in my life. I thus started to think about smaller projects. In 2008 I bought my first kiln and designed floral ceramic wall tiles that, with time, transformed into small floral beads. That was the start of my journey with jewellery and I never looked back.

My jewellery is made from Parian porcelain which, left unglazed, gives a soft feel to the ceramic pieces. There are many hours spent in the workshop on modeling, quite often during that process new pieces are created. Porcelain is a challenging material and requires a lot of patience. My aim is to extend its material possibilities in order to bring about unique pieces.
