Artist Statement

"My tendency against restrictive logics, led me to an optics where it fascinates me to balance myself on the fertile borderline and sometimes feel the unusual experience of being at the same time on both sides of the mirror's world.
The preoccupation with an idea deepens my self-knowledge, opens my thought, impregnates my movements and I become carrier and executer. Thus, I cannot be unmoved by the mythological and symbolic way of thought and I often draw creative energy from religious myths".

Technical Information
Nikos Sklaveniti's work, is widely acknowledged in Greece and his style stands out from the crowd. His work is mostly based on smoked figurative forms. He fluently uses colourer raku glazes, terra sigillattas or even coloured slips, depending on the chosen firing process through which he reaches technique and a very personal and aesthetic result, which characterises him.
