Markéta studied Ceramics Design at the J.E. Purkyně University of Ústí nad Labem, where her final work, Obšitá, won the Dean’s Award for best final work. Thanks to her distinctive style, sincerity, creativity and wit, she and her work have come to be easily recognisable. She has also been a winner in the Czech Grand Design awards – Discovery of the year, 2015. Of that same year, the Elle Deco International Design Award was presented to her for the Discovery of the Year, before going on to win the Best Prototype design prize for the Editors in Chief Awards, Designblok ’15.
