Morlok+Grīslis is a Germany and Latvia based ceramic studio. Julica Morlok originates from Germany. She started her career in carpentry but discovered ceramics during her studies at Design Academy Eindhoven where she spent one semester at the Arita College of Ceramics in Japan. Juris Grislis grew up in Latvia and studied and works as a cook. Through his work with food he was always interested in tableware and ways to present food. Working together in a restaurant they decided to explore ceramics together and to combine their love for food and crafts.
Julica and Juris produce handpinched, handbuild and handthrown pieces from stoneware. They take inspiration from natural shapes, pattern and colour and strive for a modest and calm look. They produce one of a kind pieces, small series or collections. Spontaneity and the trace of a hand can be found in all their ceramics.
Julica and Juris are always open for new collaborations.
