Anna Vlahos é uma joalheira australiana que vive na Grécia, onde encontra inspiração para o seu belíssimo e intrincado trabalho de modelação em cera em achados arqueológicos.
Ancient artisans broke down the natural world around them into patterns and motifs. The jewelry and art objects they created come out of the ground as though they grow down there. Living in Athens, these become my replacement for the natural world I left behind in Australia.
I take these simple pattern elements, borrowing from vase and amphora and rhyton, and replicate them infinitely. Using these pattern puzzle pieces, I can build a nature of my own, drawing on the flora of my memories and my home, but built using the visual language of those artisans.
