Katerina Anastasiou

Katerina Anastasiou lives and works in Athens, Greece. Her practice is based on the ancient tradition of mosaic, which originated in Greece, and which she studied at Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, Italy. Anastasiou is fascinated by the endless possibilities inherent in natural stones and Venetian glass tiles, or smalti, and she tests the limits of her materials in pursuit of the final form. For the collection presented here, she focused on the direct juxtaposition of precious metal and stone to create a narrative of opposites: motion and stability, abstract forms and figurative representation, fluidity and constraint. Anastasiou approaches each of these pieces as wearable art, with the aim of bringing joy to the wearer through reflections of light and pure color, and the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design.
