Maiyan Ben-Yona | מעין בן-יונה

Maiyan Ben Yona is a ceramic designer, a graduate of the Ceramic and Glass Department of Bezalel Art Academy. In her work on the wheel, she connects up with something basic and primary. Through processing the clay and engaging in the rhythmic, monotone of the wheelwork, she creates a space of peacefulness enabling the pieces or vessels to develop into their forms. Maiyan creates original pieces by using a combination of original surface work with other original techniques. The pieces are made from stoneware clay and porcelain that are burnt at a high temperature of 1230 -1280 degrees.
