The multitasker

  • • Marina has multiple talents
  • • She opened her first workshop in 1998
  • • Her creations have a deep connection with nature

When asked how she would describe her work, Marina Anaya responded with just one word: “kind”. Perhaps this is why her ceramic pieces are all constructed by hand, without the use of a throw; carefully and kindly crafted. Her Madrid workshop hosts not only her work as a ceramicist, but also her jewellery creations, paintings and engravings. As a child she would entertain working and experimenting using her hands, and becoming an artisan was an organic path to follow, after studying Fine Arts and attending the Moncloa School of Ceramics. Marina is a multitasker, her abilities nourish and inspire one another, her ability is to mingle different elements of each. Her work is executed paying homage to traditional techniques, while innovating in shapes and function. Nature means everything to her, inspires her aesthetic, and she escapes to the woods to learn from it.
