Modern Ancestors was Moïo Studio's first major project, featuring one-off sculptural vessels and limited edition pieces featuring a cobalt blue lava glaze, which reveals golds spots on the clay body underneath. The forms were inspired from a personal visual vocabulary by Moio Studio's Maia Beyrouti, developed from an illustration project using Le Corbusier’s Modulor grid; a project started in 2019.
0/26 is a wheel thrown ceramic vase by Maia Beyrouti; a limited edition of 100. The Modern Ancestors series is hand-glazed and therefore may vary slightly from piece to piece, which makes each one unique.
Each piece is signed and numbered at the base and presented with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Moïo Studio hand-produces unique and limited-edition ceramic pieces, with the Modern Ancestors series selected by the Australian Financial Review’s Life & Leisure in their Best of Design 2019.

Care & Maintenance
