My name is Maria and I am from Dresden.
I started my start-up, Becherfaktur, in summer of 2017. I lovingly handcraft very special ceramic goods in unique shapes and colors, currently v.a. mugs, cups and bowls.
The idea came to me looking for special gifts for family and friends – especially fancy mugs.
I always loved to work creatively. I started many years ago to implement my own ideas and concepts in my hobby workshop. In the process, I discovered my great passion for pottery and working with clay, then took several courses and conducted a lot of self-study, and since then I have been producing special ceramic mugs and cups with great pleasure.
By completing a technical degree in 2016, I gained additional experience with new technologies. I am particularly interested in 3D printing technology, which is also used in the development process of my ceramic products. Only the combination of classical pottery techniques with innovative 3D printing processes enables me to create my own special ceramic creations.
Finally my creations came so well to family and friends, that I decided to sell my products. The Becherfaktur was born!
I am always enthusiastic about the diverse design possibilities offered by the natural material clay. In addition to finding the form and development of my products, experimenting with different glazes and putting together glaze combinations is another incredibly exciting and creative process. By processing and glazing of my earthenware by hand, no product exactly resembles the other. Each of my creations has its own characteristics in shape and color, and is therefore absolutely unique. I am always happy to develop new interesting designs and objects. So stay tuned what will happen in the future! 😉
I hope you like my special ceramic creations as well and I can make your everyday life a little bit more colorful!
