Getting back to our roots, our collections are inspired by our birthplace and family's home, the sacred Ojai Valley.


Each Mayware piece is designed and wheel-thrown with intention by local Ojai artist- Jeffrey Ryan May.

Locally Made

Mayware is a love story about a local artist, his creative wife, and their life in Ojai, California.


Designed to be well-loved and used daily, our pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe.


We make beautiful pottery with care and intention for our people who love bringing art into everyday living.

More Than A Mug

The mug you use matters just as much as what you put in it! Your morning mug means something about the type of person you are...the type of person who intentionally brings artistic inspiration into even the most mundane moments. You are our people.


Bring Ritual Into Everyday Moments

Our Ritual Ceramics Collection is designed to spark more meaninful moments in your everyday life through conscious and intentional design.


Meet the Mayware Maker

Ceramic Artist - Jeffrey Ryan May

Born and raised in Ojai, CA, Jeffrey proudly carries the label of being a true Ojai native. His love of clay began in college where he discovered his passion and natural ability. His talent was backed by tenacity when he met his partner Kali, a fellow creative with an eye for design and an entrepreneurial fire. Together this creative couple co-created Mayware Ceramics, Mayware Design Studio, two wild children, and a magical life in sunny Ojai, CA.
