MapMap art are Maree & Paul Allitt. They have worked together on creative projects and designs since art school in Portsmouth. The couple have a shared love of surface, pattern and form leading them to create a range of minimalist art pottery. They like to think their designs are contemporary, fun and colourful with a touch of Mid-Century style.

They worked at Kettle’s Yard House and Gallery, Cambridge, for many years, a collection renowned for its close association with British Modernism and the St Ives School which tempers their oldest influences like John Clappisson’s designs for Hornsea Pottery.

Now working from their Cambridge studio each piece is slab-built porcelain decorated using stencils and flat slip colours. In the final firing some areas are glazed making a contrast of matt and gloss surfaces, giving each piece an attractive tactile quality.
