I’m Marianna and the owner, designer and creative soul behind Peony by Marianna. With a background in economics, I never envisioned working in crafts but it has ultimately become my business and my life. I’m fortunate that my family lifestyle enables me to travel around the world: I’ve lived in 8 different countries in the last 17 years, from the Middle East, Asia and Europe. I continuously use my travelling experience as inspiration, incorporating new ideas, cultures and themes into my work.
I discovered Japanese air drying clay, ClayCraft by Deco, over 7 years ago and I immediately fell head over heels in love with the handmade flowers it created: my business was born. This innovative and unique air-drying modelling clay is light, pliable and extremely versatile. It’s a wonderful material to work with. Whether I’m creating a simple design or a truly imaginative creation, the clay is perfect for a variety of different projects. The result is always a beautiful, light-weight creation that will give you a lifetime of enjoyment. It’s hard-wearing and tough, yet soft to touch and divine to look at.
Whether you’re dreaming of realistic flower arrangements, home decorations or even a bespoke wedding bouquet: I can create it for you. My exquisite clay floral designs mean you can treasure your wedding flowers long after your big day – the perfect keepsake of your nuptials. I work with a number of clients, including interior designers, hotels, restaurants and brides-to-be. One of my largest clients is Peppermill Hotel and Casino in Nevada, USA, where I create beautiful wall decorations for their meeting rooms. No request is too big or too small, and I will work with you throughout the whole process to make sure you’re completely happy with the final product.
