Míse is a meditation on gathering, tenderness, and patience created by Kaïa Etezadi.
Stemming from the Farsi word for ‘table’ Míse (pronounced meez) is a project about gathering. As the heart of her grandparent’s home, the dining table has been one of Kaïa’s most cherished sites of memory. At its core, Míse has never been about making products- it’s about encouraging joy, about emphasizing the value of togetherness, and about cherishing even the smallest quotidian moments. For Kaïa, working with clay is about well being, about bringing forms to life through mindful acts of bodily awareness and patience, and about the practice of letting go.
Míse operates within Tiohtià:ke, unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehà:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we operate, create, and from which the majority of our supplies are gathered.
