A minute with Marianna Tserkezou Ceramics Artist


Where do you live?
I live in Nicosia.

What did you have for breakfast?
Chocolate croissant with my coffee.

Describe your perfect day
In general, any day that starts with a smile, optimism and good mood. Ideal for me is to be in my studio, creating while listening to my favourite music. Also, a perfect day for me is wandering around a foreign country, discovering new things and having new experiences.

Best book ever read?
To Live, To Love and To Learn. I read it when I was still a teenager and it made me see some things differently. In the course of my life I realised that this is the meaning.

Best childhood memory?
One of my favourite childhood memories is when the whole family, uncles, aunts, cousins, would gather on Sundays in my mother’s village, and we would play all day non-stop.

What is always in your fridge?
Water and milk for my coffee.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Mostly English pop/rock.

What’s your spirit animal?
The horse, because it is an animal characterised by its independence and freedom but at the same time by its courage and devotion.

What are you most proud of?
For the goals I managed to achieve so far and the situations I managed to overcome, thus making my dreams come true and now building happiness as I define it, with a lot of effort, persistence and patience.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
I rarely watch movies, so I don’t remember…

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I am still thinking about it…

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
Italy in 1980.

What is your greatest fear?
Health issues that can greatly affect your life.

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Believe in yourself! Dare to do the things you love!

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
A closed mind and lying

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
