Hi, my name is Mari Saan. I´m a studio ceramist living and making unique one-of-a-kind handmade ceramic dinnerware in a beautiful modern city Tallinn, Estonia.
I have always loved handcrafting. There is something special about all handmade. 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 more about this secret world. I knew for some time that corporate life is not for me because I desired to be free. I wanted to do something that is creative, to do everything by hand and do it passionately. I love nordic, scandinavian but also modern and traditional Japanese style, simple forms and colors. I love brush strokes on canvas, smell of real leather and wood, textures, simple patterns, natural, pastel, black & white, gray colors and imperfections. The surrounding nature, people, objects and emotions inspire and influence me greatly. Every item is designed and handmade by me personally and with great care. I put all my efforts, my love and warmth to it.

As a studio ceramist my mission is to provide unique
one-of-a-kind handmade pieces of nordic rustic dinnerware for home and restaurants which delicately completes
the food on a plate and gives that extra feeling for
perfect dining experience.
