Our Story

Pagitan (in-between):
- between two clear or accepted stages or states
Pagitan Clay Crafts is inspired by the artist's love for historical art (life in the past), unusual appreciation of macabre art (anything involving death that depicts our future life) and everything in between. This also includes folklore and anything whimsical that the artist see in her imaginary worlds where she finds comfort in.

The Artist

Hallo! I'm Mayel! I'm the artist, owner, and the person in front and behind the camera in Pagitan 

Even when I was young, I know that I have this creativity in me. But I suck at drawing (even today lol) So, for years, I've been trying different medium to create art. I've tried drawing with ink, pen, charcoal, then painting with watercolor and gouache, then I also tried calligraphy, and a lot more. Even though I sucked at those things, one thing I know (or at least think) I'm good at–handicrafts. I've done a few DIY stuff for my room decor, then handmade crafts as gifts, and others.

Last March 2020, I saw a polymer clay shop and thought maybe I could do that. So, I did my research and decided to work with polymer clay and bought a few tools. Now, I'm a one-woman team - from CS, planning the design, moulding, assembling, marketing, packing, etc! Soon, I'd love to explore more and create a bigger piece... pottery maybe? hmm...

Thanks for reading, may your day be as lovely as you  ♥
