My name is Joseph Jordi Marqués-Falk (Jordi). I'm a Maui based ceramics teacher with a lifelong passion for wheel thrown functional ceramic art. When I was twelve years old I enrolled in a weekly ceramics class for teens that I regularly attended up until my graduation from high school in 2011. I 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, I started making pottery at the Hui No’eau and established my own studio in Makawao on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawai'i. I have sold at markets and events all over Maui and today all of my inventory is listed in my updated online store. I'm also well known for my work teaching pottery. I began teaching pottery privately in September of 2020, and in 2021 I taught the ceramics class for the Haleakala Waldorf High School. My classes are generally met with enthusiasm and my past and current students rave of my wonderful teaching abilities. In truth, it's because I strive to empower the creative capacity inherent in all my students, and to have fun in each moment.
