Maak Contemporary Ceramics

Maak are market leading auction specialists and art consultants dedicated to the foremost international studio ceramic art of the 20thand 21st century.

Maak was established in 2008 by Marijke Varrall-Jones, who has over a decade of market experience at the very highest level as former Head of Contemporary Ceramics at Bonhams.

Maak presents two auctions a year which are conscientiously curated to offer works by a broad selection of ceramic artists, reflecting all the major developments from the early Anglo-Oriental traditionalists to the contemporary ceramic artists of today. The auctions have a particular emphasis on British Studio Ceramics, however Maak has an international audience and as such also offers Japanese, European and American ceramics on a regular basis.

The Maak Contemporary Ceramics auctions have become well established amongst collectors and the auction viewing exhibitions at the ROA Gallery in London provide rare opportunities for collectors and enthusiasts of studio ceramics to see significant collections featuring works by the leading names in British and International Studio Ceramics.

Today Maak Contemporary Ceramics is the only organisation in the UK to hold regular auctions dedicated to this field.

The Maak auctions take place online via their innovative iRostrum auction platform, with lots available to view on their website up to two weeks prior to the gallery viewing and then a four-day bidding period that is live during the gallery viewing.

All the works in the auction are exhibited on public view at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, 5 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 4UP.

Appointments outside of our auction views are at our private offices by prior arrangement.
