smink things is the studio of designer marianne smink, based, in East of London.
as a former fashion designer, marianne has a long history with print and design. her eyes are drawn to subtle imperfections and tiny upsets in a pattern’s balance. these often arise from the hand-crafted techniques she uses or the surprising interplay of screen-printing onto ceramic tiles. inspiration comes instinctively to marianne.
the traditional processes and finishes that she has mastered deconstruct the bold and simple shapes of her signature designs.
