Who We Are

Gaya Ceramic and Design has been shaped with patience and love in the harmonic atmosphere of Bali.

Marcello Massoni and Michela Foppiani, both passionate ceramists, have come from Italy in 2002 to share their long experience with the skills and enthusiasm of a group of equally passionate people to establish a place where intuition and inspiration combine perfectly.

From an outset of just a couple pairs of hands assisting Marcello and Michela, Gaya CAD has grown to about 80 employees, mostly coming from Sayan, the village where the company is located. The majority of them were initiated in ceramics with the company’s internal training programs.  The Gaya Ceramic team is a multicultural coexistence…. Balinese Hindu, Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists are happy to share the same passion.

In 2010 the Gaya Ceramic Arts Center was developed as the educational branch of the production company. The two spaces coexist in an inspiring and supportive symbiosis that benefits all clients and employees simultaneously.
