Description

A landscape of glazes. The world of raw materials, heat, and alchemy. A dance of chemical reactions to 1240 degrees Celsius. There will never be another like this, it is impossible to recreate such happening. Each and every one is a surprise, a unique experiment; the fruit of many years of diligent glaze research, recording, mixing, and firing. Your eyes will travel on the surface and discover the metallic reflections, the colors, the microcosms of crystals forming within the glaze, but your hands will rejoice too in the plethora of textures, crevices, edges.

The “Glazescapes” are hung on the wall by the brass, laser-cut smiley faces that designer Melina Xenaki has designed for them. There are three attached to the back, so you can decide the orientation. There is no right way up or down when you are a microcosm.

About Melina Xenaki Visit Showroom →

Inspired by the artefacts found in the region of the Mediterranean, from the Bronze Age ceramic ritualistic pots to the 20th century traditional embroideries, I destine my pieces to carry patterns, animals and plants, realizing a dialogue of earth, fire and living things of our Great Sea across millennia. Trained to deliver high end craftsmanship in the lines of British studio pottery, my commitment to excel in technical skill is as strong as my desire to instill the narrative and beauty of the treasures of my cultural heritage into my work. From hand-building and throwing to slip-casting I use the making method most fitting to each project I take on. Understanding of glaze chemistry is as fundamental as making for me, experimenting to discover new extraordinary qualities, vibrant colours and intriguing textures that cover my ceramic surfaces and complement my forms. Melina Xenaki is a London/Athens based ceramic artist. After completing her BA with first class in Ceramics & Glass (UCA, Farnham) the maker moved to London to complete her two year Masters at the Royal College of Art. Since her graduation she has been a full-time ceramic artist and teacher. She has collaborated with two big architecture practices, OOAK architects and Kokosalaki architecture, to create unique ceramic installations responding to the peculiarities of each site, and created exclusive collections for the shops of the British Museum and the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture.
