From the Maker, Mayware Ceramics:
"Mayware Ceramics specializes in contemporary, wheel-thrown, functional pieces designed to bring the art of handmade design into everyday use. Each piece is crafted with intention by ceramic artist Jeffrey Ryan May, and is uniquely one-of-a-kind.
Mayware is the brainchild of artist Jeffrey Ryan May, and partner, Carole Kennelly. Carole and Jeffrey met in the Spring of 2011 in Ojai, CA. The couple spent the following year in San Francisco and Berkeley where they began to establish their first wholesale accounts around the beloved Mission District. Soon thereafter, opportunity took them to Arizona where they officially launched Mayware Ceramics in January of 2014.
In 2018, Mayware Ceramics reestablished itself in Jeffrey's home town of Ojai, CA where the couple now resides."
