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.
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’re showing a sample of our work here, if you’d like to see more our Instagram accounts are linked below. Please contact us if you see anything you’d like to buy, we can take payment online.
