Marina Kurukchi is a Crimean artist who, together with her family (mother, husband and sons), cultivated Crimean Tartar ceramic traditions. After the annexation of Crimea, she left her home and moved near Kiev but has tried to preserve her local culture and customs. The artist completed pottery and ceramic courses and graduated from an art school, where she specialised in painting.
To make traditional ceramics, she studies under the Crimean ethnographer Mamut Churly. Thanks to this, her beautiful, colourful products that she presents at the Fair faithfully follow the legacy of the centuries-old and complicated history of the Crimean Tatars. The characteristic patterns and colours of her pieces guarantee that her stall never goes unnoticed but attracts everyone not just to buy the works of art but also to learn about the traditions of this ethnic group.
