Maham Anjum is an award-winning designer, potter and researcher. Based in London, she has lent her skills and talent to international brands, Michelin-starred restaurants and small communities across the world.
Working from her North London studio, Maham has over a decades’ experience designing and producing artisanal ceramics. Her unique understanding of manufacturing processes and eye for clean, comprehensible design has seen her develop products for Jamie Oliver at Home, Queensbury Hunt, David Mellor, Habitat UK, Narumi, Folklore, David Mellor, Future and Found UK, Rosenthal Germany, House of Fraser and Royal Crown Derby, among others.
Maham has also collaborated with some of London’s leading chefs and restaurateurs to create bespoke plateware matched to their needs; notably with chef Vivek Singh, who commissioned her to produce a range of plates and dishes for his Cinnamon Club restaurant. She also designed the range for award-winning London restaurant Hoppers and is working with Typing Room and Vineet Bhatia of Rasoi.
Maham’s designs are driven by technical innovation and a desire to produce ceramics that can be manufactured simply, drawing on her South Asian roots and research trips to Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Ethiopia. She is influenced by traditional European and British styles, too, and delicately channels them into her forward-thinking creations. Her work has been extensively featured by Tabletop Journal, a US based publication, Tableware International Magazine and Wallpaper*.
Maham is a graduate of the Royal College of Art with an MPhil in Ceramics and Central St. Martins College of Art and Design with a BA Hons and MA in Ceramic Design.
