Mari Saan is a studio ceramicist living in a beautiful modern city Tallinn, Estonia. She creates limited batches of tableware, vases and experimental one-off pieces. Because of this, there are often only one of each. Saan´s work is simple and organic in form, rich in texture and colour and contemporary in design. Her tableware has been commissioned by a number of restaurants in Estonia.
"I discovered my passion for clay world thanks to my mother-in-law Aino Saan who is well known ceramic artist and beloved art teacher in Estonia. Her works inspired me and I wanted to know and learn more. I haven't stopped making since" she says.
"I love nordic, scandinavian but also modern and traditional Japanese style, simple organic forms and neutral pastel colours. I love brush strokes on canvas, smell of real leather and wood, textures, simple patterns, imperfections. The surrounding nature, people, objects and emotions inspire and influence me greatly. "
She uses traditional making methods and crafting skills such as hand building, wheel throwing and pinching. 
Every piece is designed and handmade by her.
