Ruseta Sá

Creative design and watercolor artist

I grew up surrounded by mountains, rivers, and lakes between the Pyrenees of Huesca and Lérida. I come from Nature. It’s a part of me, it’s how I understand the world. Earth and nature are the origins of every idea, design, book, illustration, or watercolor that I create. Both are an intrinsic part of my work and the way I face each purpose.

All of my experience tough me that the most important thing is to integrate the person. Understand the person and make possible its needs. Design is the result of this need, it’s the synthesis of all the ideas, it’s the space for communication, comfort, harmony, sensitivity, sincerity, and simplicity.

The creativity appears in a very organic way, it’s the expression of the simplicity that arises from the truth, the truth of each person. In the end, creativity speaks of people and their role in the world.

Mirka Drapaniotou

Ceramist

I am Mirka Drapaniotou. I live in Greece and I work as a ceramist in Athens.

My first studies in fashion design and long personal engagement with fabric design and plasticity have inevitably contributed to me exploring relevant material and artistic experimentation and eventually discovering ceramic art.

Clay, a basic and unprocessed material, has allured me as a medium of self-expression.

As it can be molded, formed, shaped and gradually transform, depending on the powers exercised on it, it becomes the motive that I need to substantiate objects that can receive, retain and finally offer not only their aesthetics, but also their archetypal function.

The forms I create have been inspired by our archaic origins, but are adapted to the modern way of living. 

The geometrical elements that form the basis for these forms function harmoniously through the interchange of light and shade, attributing to the space formed between them a role that is as significant as the object itself.

Sophia Sotiropoulou

Ceramist

I was born in April 1978 in Athens. I studied interior architecture and graphic design at the “Vakalo” school. Feeling the need for additional research and development in this field, I attended postgraduate studies in interior design at the “Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC)”. Hours of lab work and conciliation with fellow students and teachers, encouragement for experimentation and research, have been a great source of inspiration. I was launched! My faith in the power of the team was strengthened, I was assured of my love for laboratory work.

In 2011 I was in Uruguay, South America, and in my quest to integrate into that society, I took ceramics classes, much to my surprise, at the laboratory-rich cultural center of Piriapoli, where I lived. I was magnetized by this material and I felt freedom, confidence, that with a lot of work I can do it. My first teacher was a conservative hard man with a basic knowledge of ceramics and our laboratory provided the absolutely necessary and even sparingly. We worked almost exclusively with our hands as tools. The clay gave me the opportunity to implement three-dimensional objects and to be sure of the result after seeing it in front of me. In addition, its plasticity suited me. It had a softness that made me feel good.
