Getting back to our roots, our collections are inspired by our birthplace and family's home, the sacred Ojai Valley.


Each Mayware piece is designed and wheel-thrown with intention by local Ojai artist- Jeffrey Ryan May.

Locally Made

Mayware is a love story about a local artist, his creative wife, and their life in Ojai, California.


Designed to be well-loved and used daily, our pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe.


We make beautiful pottery with care and intention for our people who love bringing art into everyday living.

More Than A Mug

The mug you use matters just as much as what you put in it! Your morning mug means something about the type of person you are...the type of person who intentionally brings artistic inspiration into even the most mundane moments. You are our people.


Bring Ritual Into Everyday Moments

Our Ritual Ceramics Collection is designed to spark more meaninful moments in your everyday life through conscious and intentional design.


Meet the Maker

Ceramic Artist - Jeffrey Ryan May

Born and raised in the tranquil setting of Ojai, California, Jeffrey is a true native whose work embodies the conscious spirit of his hometown. His love for clay emerged in college, setting the stage for a passion-fueled journey into the craft. This path reached a pivotal point when he met Kali, fellow creative soul with an eye for design. Together, they co-founded Ritual Ceramics + Ritual Studios, a conscious endeavor that seamlessly blends the art of handmade ceramics with the ceremony of everyday living, inspiring others to fill their days with conscious ritual in place of mindless routines.
