Connecting to nature

  • • Tina finds joy in experimenting with ceramics
  • • She studied at Athens School of Fine Arts
  • • She transforms common shapes into psychological expressions

Tina Karageorgi created her first art ceramics for her solo show in 2011, entitled The Forest. She loves everything about her craft, “From the feel of the material in my hands to the awe at the finished product”. She studied painting and ceramics at the Athens School of Fine Arts and when creating her objects, she likes to combine different disciplines. Tina believes that ceramic art is hard labour in every sense. “Giving "birth" to a concept is very different to having a commission; it is a process that takes a long time. Sometimes ideas lie for months in my books but my mind is wondering about them incessantly. In many cases, it takes many trials and much disappointment. Ceramics is whimsical to a big degree.”
