Miro Made This: Architect-Designed Ceramics for Everyday Life

September 14, 2016

In 2008 Phoenix, Arizona–based Miro Chun was a practicing architect when, unable to find prep and serving bowls that she liked, she took up ceramics to remake the tableware in her kitchen. She left architecture and in 2014 started Miro Made This, her ceramics company making small batches of tableware.

The mark of an architect-designed bowl? It stacks, nests, or has a lidded component as Miro takes cabinet space and everyday use into consideration with her designs. Here’s a look at her current offering.
