|MiyA Pottery of Dixon, New Mexico, is the collective effort of Andrew Sanders and Miya Endo. Together they have almost thirty years of experience with clay.

MiyA Pottery Studio
Miya, captivated by the beauty of Japanese culture and its special relationship with ceramic ware, started making pottery at the Indianapolis Art Center and has since allowed it to become the main focus of her life.Miya’s work is greatly influenced by her interest in things Japanese, and she likes to incorporate Japanese themes into her wheel-thrown decorative and functional ware.
Andrew and Miya have influenced each other greatly in their individual works and present a unique collection that balances function and aesthetic design. They specialize in wheel-thrown stoneware and raku. Andrew and Miya enjoy the spontaneity and direct interaction they have with each piece that goes through the stoneware and raku processes.
