Noa
is a feminine Hebrew name, derived from a root that means “movement”.
Noa
is also Arabic, with the meaning of “light”.



Maria makes functional tableware with Eastern influences inspired from her travels abroad. Using antique Indian stamps to decorate her work and combining beautiful glazes with a special blend of textured clay, Maria’s work is both elegant and enticingly tactile.




She began potting in 2005, completed an apprenticeship at North Street potters in south London, then in 2006 she studied under Simon leach at his pottery in Spain. In both 2007 and 2008 Maria spent the winters working alongside Mike Goddard at Spring pottery in Bequia, The West Indies.




Since returning from the West Indies in 2008, Maria has established her own studio in West London from where she now works full time.    ~excerpt from the Noa Ceramics website.
