Hand-made, hand-glazed tiles, lamps, and mirror frames
Since graduating from Pratt Institute with a BFA in sculpture in 1982, Marina Bosetti has devoted her life to refining her relationship with clay. Despite a progression from sculpting to pottery to art tile Marina's work has consistently celebrated life through sensual, spiritual, and joyful drawings of life's simple pleasures. Her imagery will sing and dance their way into your heart with accessible designs and easy-to-care-for, durable artwork.
Influenced by the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements, Marina's work brings beauty into everyday settings. From wall murals and kitchen and bath backsplashes, countertops, sinks, and mirror frames, to your indoor or outdoor fireplace surround, each hand-made, hand-glazed Bosetti project is unique. Marina is inspired by botanical images, religious icons, stained glass and most of all, her clients. Using the ancient technique of cuerda seca - a cloisonné-inspired method that mimics the look of mosaic - each tile's intensely rich ceramic glaze looks so soft it begs to be touched.
