My background is rooted in art & design. I have studied graphic design in Athens and worked as a designer at an animation studio and creative labs.
My transition to ceramics came from the need to actually touch my 2D ideas and images and bring them into 3D existence. At this time of life I was going through a personal process where the solitude, the repetitive and transformative nature of working with clay was an absorbing exploration. I devoted myself to this practice.
While living and working in Japan I immersed in the raw nature of the elements and the appreciation of ceremony in everyday life. That was a life changing experience.
I am interested in the art of living, inspired by the ordinary, the essential and by the interaction we have with objects on a daily basis. How small details, different tastes influence our moods and choices.
These days I work hand in hand with chefs designing exclusive tableware for restaurants.
