Vessels by Maria Chatzinikolaki.  



"I grew up in an artistic family with my dad in the advertising business since the late 60’s and my mum a piano teacher. Influenced by the many sides of art, I decided to choose visual arts twice in my life, once as a graphic designer and then as a ceramicist.


When I decided to stop working in the advertising business I found a job as a retail assistant in a shop that sold ceramics. When one of their production assistants got sick I was asked to help with production as well and soon I replaced the hours in the shop with more hours in the studio. Two years later I was decorating their main dinnerware range.


Upon my arrival in Australia seven years ago, I visited the JamFactory in Adelaide, which left me envious of all the people who constitute this creative environment. I made it my goal to become a member of this creative family. Two years later I applied for the associateship in the ceramics department which I completed in 2011 and now, having met that goal, I am working from my studio in the JamFactory as a tenant."


Maria uses intricate designs and detailed patterns in her work to create movement onto the surface of an object.  She draws inspiration primarily from nature.
