Bauman Design is the brainchild of Maya Wakatsuki Bauman. She was raised by a family of ceramicists in Nagano, Japan where her creative talents were truly nurtured. After two decades of studying jewelry and becoming an expert in the industry, she began to create her own pieces for modern minimalists with refined taste. Collections from Maya Bauman Design are all handcrafted with love in the artist’s Marin County studio. From delicate treasures to everyday pieces, each piece reflects her love and passion.
