The unique pieces of ceramic and porcelain jewelry on show at Chris Boïcos Fine Arts, Paxos by six distinguished Greek ceramic artists was specially created for the current summer exhibition as a homage to the beauty and the nature of the island of Paxos. The colors and textures of Paxos’ nature from the sea to the shingle of the beaches, the worn surfaces of the grey stone walls of the olive groves, the barks of the olive trees and the color of their leaves are reflected in the shapes, tones and surfaces of the necklaces, brooches and earrings on show. More than a mere decorative object these jewels contain and reflect the spirt of our beautiful island !

Ilias Hristopoulos is one of the most dynamic ceramicists working in Greece today. Though based in Kalamata in the Southern Peloponnese, he participates in seminars, exhibitions and workshops in many other locations in Greece and has been instrumental in organizing important group exhibitions, featuring contemporary Greek ceramics, most notably in some of Greece’s most famous archeological museums - Delphi, Pella and Patras. Hristopoulos has taken part in ceramic workshops in Paxos and has been exhibiting his work there since 2016. He has participated in seven competitive international ceramic exhibitions, as well as a group exhibition alongside four Greek ceramists in Paris.
This autumn he will take part in the prestigious Manises ceramics exhibition in Valencia, Spain and will also be showing his work in a Greek ceramicists’ exhibition in November/December 2019 in Paris at Chris Boïcos Fine Arts.

Haroula Koropouli is one of Ilias Hristopoulos’ most talented students. She runs an important ceramic workshop in her home-town Patras in the Peloponnese and is the founder of the ceramicists’ group “Traces”. She works frequently in collaboration with Hristopoulos, participating in many of the same exhibitions and seminars in Greece. In the last years her work has taken on a powerful, rustic and organic quality which binds it to the earthiness and archaic traditions of Greece. Koropouli has taken part in ceramic workshops in Paxos and has been exhibiting her work there since 2016. This autumn she will also take part in the prestigious Manises ceramics exhibition in Valencia, Spain and will be showing her work in the Greek ceramicists exhibition in Paris at Chris Boïcos Fine Arts.

Vassiliki Kyriaki is a new talent in the Greek ceramic scene and a student among others of the celebrated Greek ceramicist Theodora Horafa. Based in Athens she exhibits her work there and also on the island of Patmos in the summertime. Her ceramic jewelry on exhibition for the first time in Paxos is inspired by sea pebbles and stones and is remarkable for its lightness and delicacy.

Angeliki Papadopoulou received a very tough training in the creation of ceramics and porcelain in Thessaloniki, Faenza, Italy, and Krefeld, Germany. She is today based in Giannitsa in Macedonia near the celebrated archeological site of Pella where she has also exhibited her work.
She likes to use a minimum of material for a maximum of creative expression. She investigates the nature of her materials and how they can be endlessly molded and fashioned into unique objects of art – works characterized by a high aesthetic value, technical sophistication, refinement and grace and visually seductive. She has taught in many European institutions in Greece, Italy, Hungary, Serbia, Thailand and China and has also participated in five international Ceramic Art Symposiums in Turkey, Thailand, Serbia, China and Tunisia. Her work has been presented in personal and group exhibitions throughout Greece and around the world. In the last few years she has increasingly concentrated on the production of her highly original ceramic jewelry. This is her first exhibition in Paxos and she will also be showing her work in November/Decmeber 2019 in a Greek ceramicists exhibition in Paris at Chris Boïcos Fine Arts.

Angeliki Politi is also a student of Ilias Hristopoulos. She is based in Messini in the southern Peloponnese and teaches ceramics at the municipal art school of Kalamata. She exhibits widely in Greece notably at the major Greek ceramic annual exhibition - the Pan-Hellenic Exhibition of Artistic Ceramics – in Marousi, Athens. Her work was also shown in the major contemporary ceramic exhibition that took place at the Archeological Museum of Delphi in 2017.

Ifigenia Tsirou has been working as a professional ceramist at Hakah Ceramics Design Production in Thessaloniki in patrnership with the well-known Greek ceramicist George Vavatsis. She is a co-founder of of the gallery 6exi Contemporary Ceramics in Thessaloniki, where she and Vavatsis organize ceramics exhibitions of foreign and Greek artists. She also teaches ceramic courses in Thessaoloniki. Tsirou has taken part in ceramic workshops in Paxos and has been exhibiting her work there since 2017. Her white porcelain medallions in the current exhibition mix organic elements reminiscent of beach shingle with reminiscences of the classic cameos. Delicate silver drops or streaks add a subtle brilliance to the mat surfaces.
