maya’s process stems from a belief in perfection and symmetry but with the knowledge that these qualities often hide within imperfection and asymmetry. she brings a love of research, a minimalist sensibility, and a sculptural approach to making. maya investigates materials and their capacities to perform physically and poetically. her work emerges from the belief that no material is static and that there is beauty to be found in the changing surfaces of objects as they are worn.
maya received her mja from cranbrook academy of art in 2007. she is the recipient of a searchlight award from the american craft council and has exhibited her jewelry in the united states and internationally.
