About Mao Projects

Daily Kawaii

Mao Projects

Mao Projects is an art and ceramic studio based in Canada that focuses on small-batch functional cute ceramics. Adorable and playful tableware inspired by kawaii culture brings peace of mind to your daily rituals. Each of our mugs, plates, and bowls is lovingly crafted by hand, making each piece unique and special. Our tableware is not only adorable but also functional and durable, suitable for everyday use or for special occasions.


We believe in the beauty of handmade goods and the joy that comes with owning something truly unique. That's why we pour our heart and soul into every piece we create. Whether you're looking for a cute mug for your morning coffee or a whimsical plate for your next dinner party, we've got you covered. Explore our collection and discover the perfect addition to your home or a thoughtful gift for a loved one. 


Mao Projects first started as a small fun side project based on Mao's research-creation during her Master of Fine Art but has since expanded to become an official business founded by Mao (Kun) Chen and partner Chris Savage. Both are visual artists and instructors who met while pursuing MFA degrees and have exhibition records within Canada, the UK, and China.
