Maria Roth is a Vancouver-based designer making felted wool objects of uncommon beauty.
The work is intended to delight as well as be used for many years, and embodies a love of exuberant colours intertwined with the sombre greys of rainy West Coast winters. Her background includes graduate and professional work in visual art, material culture research, museum studies, and graphic design.
Her studio focuses on one of a kind and small run production. It is committed to sustainable practice through careful material sourcing, use of biodegradable and recycled/vintage/antique materials, and low impact production methods.
