Madoka Rindal was born and raised in Japan. Lives and works in Paris. She leaves Japan for Paris to study applied arts. After working as a graphic designer in different fields for over 10 years, she is now fully devoted to ceramics. 

Greatly influenced by the Wabi-Sabi, the praise of “perfect imperfection”, Madoka create everyday objets for daily use.  She believes in the idea that any material object disintegrates with time, get destroyed or damaged by accident, but that dented or broken object has a particular beauty in its singular flaw.

On these objects, a cup, a plate or a bowl, Madoka often appends one or several faces, always in a peacock blue, as for breathing life into each one of her pieces.

All her items are in stoneware, handbuilt, fired and glazed in her atelier in Romainville, just outside of Paris. The faces on the ceramics are drawn with glaze on a paintbrush.
