Few words from our master potter and owner of Studio Croker, Igor Romich…

Dear friend, when I decided to start Pottery studio, back in 2003, that was a reckless decision! Didn’t have any knowledge, any business background, no studio space. Just enormous enthusiasm and personal will to create functional pottery. Over past 18 years my studio has grown, ups brought happiness and satisfaction, downs brought lot of gray hairs but made me stronger for future challenges.  And today, I don’t regret a single hour spent in my studio.It is logical upgrade of my lifetime interests in arts, crafts and design.

Before pottery I experimented with many different medias in different places. Novi Sad (Serbia), Berlin (Germany), Zagreb (Croatia). Music, painting, writing… But my heart started to pump faster when I took a clump of clay for the first time. It was a feeling like finally arriving back home after a long, long journey.
My big love is pottery wheel and functional ceramics is what keeps my motor running. Over the years I took part on many Croatian
and international projects, from art workshops to serial production of ceramics. I mastered all types of making ceramic products but
pottery wheel was always my first choice.

My design deliberations are leaned on following priorities: functionality, quality, simplicity.

My goal is to link this ancient craft with modern business demands and to keep manufacture as relevant economy activity.

Respecting nature and passion for creating is my guideline.

Hope you’ll enjoy my pottery as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Potter
