About

We are Maree and Paul Allitt aka MAPMAP™. We’ve worked together on our creative projects and designs since art school in Portsmouth. Our shared love of surface, pattern and form led us to produce our range of minimalist ceramic art pottery, fabric and prints. We like to think our designs are contemporary, fun and colourful with a touch of Mid-Century style.

We worked for many years at Kettle’s Yard house and gallery in Cambridge so its close association with British Modernism and the St Ives School tempers our oldest influences like John Clappison’s designs for Hornsea Pottery.

Handmade in our Cambridge studio our slab-built porcelain ceramics are decorated using stencils and flat slip colours. In the final firing some areas are glazed making a contrast of matt and gloss surfaces and giving each piece an attractive tactile quality.

We offer a variety of work from minimal and modern hanging decorations to contemporary ceramics and fabrics by the metre featuring our distinctive range of surface patterns. We’re showing a sample of our work here, if you’d like to see more please visit our Instagram accounts linked below.

Please DM us if you see anything you’d like to buy. We have online stores on Etsy and Spoonflower, and brick-and-mortar settings such as; Cambridge Contemporary Art, Cambridge Open Studios and selected other venues around the UK including Studio Eleven in our home town Hull.

We welcome approaches from shops and galleries, please use our contact form in the first instance.
