Tina Karageorgi

Trained in ceramics, mixed media, metal sculpture, photography, and silkscreen printing, Greek designer Tina Karageorgi makes jewelry using a variety of techniques, translating works of art into wearable objects. The collection presented here focuses on porcelain, termed “the white gold” in eighteenth-century Europe—an alchemistic curiosity made of earth, water, fire, and air. This choice is informed by her love of ceramics and by her urge to touch and knead the soft material, to shape it with her hands. Precious and semiprecious stones and patinated and gilded silver complete the palette of materials. Her iconography looks at flora and fauna captured in vivid motion and vibrant color. Beyond her experience of the natural world, Karageorgi draws inspiration from a personal reading of Old Master paintings and Far Eastern artistic traditions.
