Living her dream

  • • Marina works in the picturesque town of Kastav, Croatia
  • • Her products are inspired by nature and sweet childhood memories
  • • She cherishes honesty and sustainability

After studying history of art and computer science, in 2011 Marina Marinski got an opportunity to work as an apprentice in a renowned potter's studio. This was her first real contact with clay and the production process. It turned out to be a life changer, love at first sight. Two years later, she got a degree in ceramic design and opened her own company. Marinski Heartmades specialises in making ceramic products for everyday use, such as tableware, home decor and jewellery. Products are crafted in her studio from beginning to end, using techniques including casting, wedging, 3D modelling, 3D printing, throwing on the wheel, glazing, colouring, designing and product photography. “While making, I take every piece into my hands at least 15 times, so it truly is a part of me,” says Marina.
