Artist Statement: Functional pottery is an opportunity for a piece of fine art to form a personal relationship with someone. It is something that is loved and held, that wears with time and becomes a part of a person's daily life. I apply illustration and narrative techniques to my ceramics as a vehicle for forging this relationship. My hope is that my art tells the story of where magic intersects with everyday life. 
Bio: Maliya is a ceramic artist from Rochester NY who creates small batch pottery. She loves finding the intersection where the two-dimensional meets the three-dimensional and finding ways to make art that is uniquely her own.
