Dora Haralambaki, well known from her ceramic bold jewellery, plays with differen materials and tries to build shapes that complement the body. Her painting background gives her the skill to express visual concepts with her contemporary creations!
Time, repetition, period, women, motherhood, protection.
My obsessions, in life and in art.
I started as a painter and I passed slowly to jewellery, always with all my obsessions
! My target is to express my thoughts combining very different materials together
to very large scale objects for body.
For me jewellery is a tool to communicate without words.
My main material is porcelain, which is pure and natural and gives me
the opportunity to make whatever I imagine!
