About

Welcome to my online shop. I am Maria Alvarez Echenique, an artist and ceramic maker based in Hackney, London.

All my ceramic pieces are unique and handmade, including tableware and decorative sculptural pieces.

My homeware pieces are hand-thrown and combine practicality, original designs and handmade illustration and glazes.

My decorative sculptural works are also unique. I explore familiar cultural artefacts forms, often mixing contrasting cultural and historical influences, references and attributes such as heritage, identity and, in some cases, gender.
