Celebrating 10 Years of Maak Auctions

Maak is celebrating its 10 year anniversary as the leading specialist auction house dedicated to studio ceramics. Over the course of a decade, Maak has been at the forefront in the rise in interest in studio ceramics. Our commitment to cultivating the international market for modern and contemporary ceramics has been integral to fueling the sustained growth within this specialist field.

Maak has grown to be internationally recognised as being at the forefront in the development of the contemporary ceramics market, selling a total hammer in excess of £5 million to an audience that reaches across over 100 countries around the world. Having been entrusted with sale of important private collections, such as the Miami Private Collection in 2019 and the Dayabandhu Collection in 2020 as well as distinguished individual works, Maak has been well positioned to present the finest selections of ceramics in their highly anticipated auction schedule.

Looking back of the last 10 years, Marijke Varrall-Jones, Founder and Director of Maak says, “It’s been an extraordinary 10 years and I’m very proud when I reflect on how far Maak has come in that time. To think that Maak started with me at my kitchen table and seeing the business grow to where we are today, has brought me great fulfillment and is something I am hugely grateful for. Many of our collectors have been with us from the start, whilst we have welcomed many more along the way, all of us connected by our shared enthusiasm for ceramics.”
