Smink Things studio

Smink Things is the studio of designer Marianne Smink. Born and raised in the Netherlands and having lived in London for over 13 years, Marianne brings a background in print design and an eye for the beauty of imperfection to her work.

Each Smink Things tile is handmade at our factory in Portugal. The collection comprises bold and graphic designs in solid colours that can be arranged into subtle and striking designs. Quiet imperfection is the hallmark of Smink Things – every tile is slightly different. The glazes and colours are screen-printed by hand before firing in a kiln.

Smink Things tiles are a celebration of traditional processes and subtle imperfection. They’re an invitation to the architect/designer to create something fresh and lasting in ceramics.
