Born in Thessaloniki, Greece, Margarita Ecclesiarchou now lives in Aegina, an island known for its long ceramics tradition. Her close daily contact with nature has been an ongoing source of inspiration. Her series Shells, takes its inspiration from seashells and their fascinating diversity. Observing the perfection of their structures; the repetitive yet asymmetrical symmetrical patterns, and their smooth, rough, wavy textured surfaces, Margarita reveals the immense wealth of natural variety. Just as nature slowly and successively builds the pattern on the seashell surface, Margarita Ecclesiarchou bends over her materials with patience and persistence to create every minute detail of the delicate porcelain surfaces. Her most recent work was presented in a solo exhibition at the prestigious Benaki Museum in Athens, Greece.
