Story telling through mosaics...
I am Aglaia Peithi from Athens,
After havind studied and practised Law for several years, I decided to focus on the essential and do what I love most : Mosaic ! I took mosaic lessons and seminars in Athens, Greece and Ravenna, Italy and since 2001 I have constantly been working as a Mosaicist. My current infatuation is mosaic portraits. . .
Working with tesserae, gives me peace of mind and a sense of participation to the magical transformation of hard raw material into an artwork. For me this is the magic of mosaic. I simply adore marble and stone as my primary raw materials, but I keep on experimenting and working with smalti and stained glass as well.
Be my guest to explore my site and take a look at my stories through tesserae...You will find mostly wall art and portraits as well as some home decoration.
