Since 1983, I ‘ve been studying pottery and working with clay and it’s multitude of techniques and participated in various artistic and commercial exhibitions locally and abroad. I’ ve been also occupied as an instructor, teaching pottery to professional training schools and been a founding member of the cultural group “Keramon” which is dedicated to the support and strengthening of this ancient craft. From 1988 I ‘ve created my own workshop in Iraklion, Crete where I live and work ’till today.
