About
Mystic beauty to enlighten your perception. The essence from the Magic Ananda designs are inspired on the ancestral heritage of the divine creation and its origins. This universal wisdom is expressed through the sacred geometries that guide the rhythm of life and the human visions of the cosmos, and many of its myths and rituals. Our beautiful and exclusive ceramics manifest a contemporary artistic vision of symbols and ornaments that were inherited by antique civilizations, with the intention to honor and preserve our connection with that what is sacred.

The artist's house not a store
Dec 2018 • Couples
My wife and I enjoyed our visit and the ceramic artwork is special (and high end). This is the artist's home, and she only has a few items on display. That said, she will custom make a piece for your home. Only if you are seriously interested in ceramic arts should you visit. Make sure you follow the directions (turn left when you are at the west end of the soccer field, then 8 or so houses down on your left.

Hello Steve! Thanks for your review. I feel glad my clients see my art as high level, this show the result of 15 year of learning, experimentation, practice and dedication to the ceramic art. In site (my home) we has a little show room with the last ceramics available from this season but soon we will open our official in site gallery located very near from the place we currently are. The project is growing and in the new place we will offer not only a bigger shop with more variety of ceramics but ceramic tours, classes and workshops for persons of all ages. Our mission is to promote and preserve this ceramic art technique in Costa Rica and all money from sales is used to the financing of the new equipment and materials we need to made this dream come true! Thanks for your support and soon I will contact you to set your special order, any way you a ready has a space reserved in my list of projects for the new studio!

Exquisite ceramics
Jul 2018 • Family
I find that in the most remote areas are the best of my memorabilia found. I love creative and thoughtful pieces of usable art. I am glad that Melissa and her husband are moving to an easier location to find. These exqusite ceramics are well worth your time if you are in the area. Good luck with your new house with exhibition area.

Uniquely beautiful
Jan 2017 • Couples
These ceramics are so unique and beautiful! The artist is trying to resurrect this indigenous art form. I hope she succeeds! We bought 3 pieces. Very expensive but a lot of craftsmanship and time go into each. Smaller pieces are more affordable. Very hard to find. Take 2nd left across from the soccer field as you drive into town. Dirt road but stick with it. Best to make an appointment if possible. Owner should put out better signage?!

I was so happy and my mom as well when I bought a tea-set for her birthday! It looks much better in a real life than on the web!!! You guys make things that should be in a museum, not at my mom's home ! :))))

Out of business or will be shortly
Feb 2016 • Couples
This place is off the beaten path for any kind of business. The sign is actually behind a large bush and is not fully readable. It took about 15 seconds to realize that no one was really interested in our being there and they had only a few items on display. Anything you can do other than to track this place down would be a better way to spend your time.

Magic Ananda is small business providing high level of ceramic art. Because of specific of our business we remember all our customers, that’s why I can tell: this person never been in our gallery. Dear visitors, don’t trust fake reviews, come to enjoy our place and to make your own opinion about our art. Everybody are welcome!

Interesting "shop" with beautiful pieces
Jul 2015 • Friends
Found this place on TripAdvisor so we decided to check it out. It took us a couple of wrong turns before we stumbled across this place. You're not looking for a shop. It's actually at someone's house with a banner on their fence.

This shop sells hand made one of a kind ceramic pieces made by a local artisan. She has a couple of tables set up on her front porch with her most recent pieces. She is a bit on the pricier side but her craftsmanship is phenomenal. I would recommend checking out her website which lists everything she has for sale before heading over.

Magical place indeed !
Nov 2014 • Solo
I dont know whats behind this place but there is definitely something magical hidden for you ! They have wonderful collection of hand made ceramic stuff such as kitchen plates, teapots, smoking pipes. Very artistic. It is one of those examples when people run little business but put big love into it. Even if you don't buy anything it's still freaking awesome to just come and have a look and what they do.
If you ever come across don't hesitate to stop by ! you won't regret. Especially if you're visiting Costa Rica and wanna bring back home a special gift or souvenir then this place is way to go!
Thank you guys for a great time ! Pura vida <3
