Lilly Maetzig is the maker behind Mae Ceramics. Her work explores the contrast between the texture of raw and glazed clay, and lets the natural qualities show through on the surface of a finished piece.

Lilly moved to London in 2016, which is when she began to focus most of her energy into making pots. Lilly got her first taste of ceramics in art school in New Zealand, where they were taught basic design principles and were encouraged to use a wide range of media to make both two dimensional and sculptural work.

Since graduating Lilly has combined design skills learnt there with a love for functional ceramics. Her work is mostly minimal with nice sharp, clean lines and subtle colours and surfaces. Lilly is influenced by brutalist architecture, the conversations between the built environment and the nature that it is housed in.

Lillys work explores the contrast between the texture of raw and glazed clay and the natural qualities of the material.
