Transforming her life experiences into art

  • • Katerina lives on the island of Aegina
  • • Her garden is a great source of inspiration
  • • She loves to experiment and create with all kinds of materials

Katerina Giannaka started experimenting with ceramics quite suddenly following a challenging health problem. “I remember very well the moment I decided to pick up this craft. In 2006 I returned home after one and a half years of treatment for blood cancer, and all of a sudden, I realised that I wanted to do pottery. I started very passionately and that’s how I've continued up to this day, trying to combine painting with pottery.” Katerina considers herself a painter first; ceramics has simply allowed her to create a unique surface upon which she can paint. “Everything I do comes out of filtering the images that surround me. What I love most about the objects I create is to see my life experiences transformed into a piece of art.”
