Anna Kitsou

“For me it is the feeling of taking a raw piece of clay andcreating something unique with forms, shapes and texturesfrom scratch.”

Anna Kitsou studied Graphic Design at Vakalo Art & designCollege in Athens & she had her M.A. in Visual Communication.Before she focused exclusively on jewelry she had worked as anArt director at advertising companies. A few years later sheentered into the magic world of ceramic art. The idea to makejewelry came to her naturally.
Anna works exclusively on designing and making of ceramicjewellery.

Although Anna started her career in art exhibitions abroad andspecifically in Schmuck, gallery Weltraum, Munich and inSieraad, Amsterdam, she has always been interested in creatinghandmade ceramic jewellery that are wearable and accessibleto customers without losing the quality and their unique design.Composition, harmony and balance are what interest her inevery single one of her pieces. The engraving and the repetitionof the patterns are the main characteristics of her creations.Her jewellery have become easily recognized for theircontemporary and special character.
Her inspiration comes from the Earth, Greece and cultures.
