MIWAK JUNIOR first began as a rebellious act in a community college ceramics class, where making smoking implements was strictly verboten. Chilean artist Sebastian Boher tried twice to sneak a pipe into the kiln; but on his third try, the pipe went undetected by the censors, proving that he'd created an objet of beauty with a discreet functionality. MIWAK JUNIOR was born. 

The MIWAK JUNIOR aesthetic is inspired by Pre-Columbian cultures, Space Age wonder, and the clean minimalism of Japanese design.   

Alice and Sebastian live in Echo Park, Los Angeles, where their home studio serves as the creative nucleus of the brand.
