MALGA Ceramic Design by Mariana Filipe

Lisbon, Portugal

"My favorite pieces are the traditional ones, created for everyday use and beautifully imperfect."
In a small studio in Lisbon, I make ceramics every day. But I’m not a city person.
My inspiration comes from my origins in the Alentejo countryside and from family. I’m also interested in time-honoured techniques from elsewhere in the world.
MALGA was born in 2015, when I decided to rent a studio and start exploring the ideas I had during my master degree in industrial and product design. A mainly self-taught ceramicist, all I know about pottery I owe to the people I met on the way, and to many hours of research and work.
All of MALGA's pieces are handmade, crafted using different production techniques, including my favorite, the potter’s wheel.
