Joseph Jordi Marqués-Falk (Jordi) is a Maui based ceramics teacher with a lifelong passion for wheel thrown functional ceramic art. When Jordi was twelve years old, he enrolled in a weekly ceramics class for teens that he regularly attended up until his graduation from high school in 2011. He continued taking pottery classes in college, ultimately graduating with a BA in philosophy from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine in May of 2015. In August of 2015, Jordi started making pottery at the Hui No’eau and established his own studio in Makawao. He has sold at markets and events all over Maui and today has all of his inventory listed in his updated online store. Jordi is well known for his work teaching pottery. He began teaching pottery privately in September of 2020, and in 2021 he even taught the ceramics class for the Haleakala Waldorf High School. His classes were met with general enthusiasm and his students rave of his wonderful teaching abilities. In truth, it's because Jordi strives to empower the creative capacity inherent in all his students, and to have fun in each moment.
