Ann Maliatski is an artist and creator behind the GOLEM brand. Coming from a rich architectural and design background, Ann is translating her experience into functional and decorative ceramic pieces. She uses a variety of clay forming techniques in her practice. Wheel throwing, slip casting and hand building, are just a few. This results in unique one of a kind objects that never cease to amuse. Ann usually fires her ware to cones 6 & 10 in an electric kiln. Her colour pallet is reserved, but expressive, often highlighted by a stroke of gold to emphasize strong, gestural, organic lines of her creations. Ann equally loves working with private clients as well as big corporations. She feels like every project pushes her further and enriches her professionally and creatively. Ever since opening her studio in 2011, Ann made dishes for multiple stores and restaurants, including Botanist, Hachiro Ramen, Soar Organics, Giving Gifts, Maven Fort Langley, The Window, Urban Gardener, and Hudson’s Bay, with clients from all over the world. She makes to order several signature lines - Whistler, Particle, SIMPLE, O-planters and FLOW, and produces several seasonal capsule collections each year.
