Atelier Make has opened its doors in Plateau Mont-Royal. The studio-boutique is open Saturdays throughout November and December, with a Grand Opening on Saturday November 1st from 12-4pm.
Atelier Make’s handmade porcelain tableware brings the beauty and pleasure of fine craft into contemporary daily life. With a design aesthetic that is at once rustic and contemporary, Atelier Make’s designs appeal to a new generation of fine-craft enthusiasts. The studio prides itself on a small batch, locally handcrafted model of doing business.
For designers Jaimie Robson and Maya Ersan, Atelier Make is much more than a livelihood. It is an entrepreneurial journey based on creative chemistry, extraordinary friendship, and a shared appreciation for beautiful things. Their intention is for the objects they make enhance the daily ritual of preparing, sharing, and celebrating delicious meals, as simple or elaborate as they may be. The duo draws design inspiration from their heritage bringing a combination of Scandinavian and Mediterranean influences into their designs.
Maya is from Istanbul, and Jaimie is from Vancouver. The two met in art school, and since then have joined forces on numerous creative endeavors. While their personal and professional pursuits have led them to be thousands of miles apart over the years, their effortlessly aligned vision and a bit of serendipity brought them together in Montreal.
