Tina Vlassopulos

Tina Vlassopulos

Born: 1954

Hometown: London

Based in: London

I was born in London and after gaining a BA Honours from Bristol Polytechnic, I returned and set up my studio there. My work consists of one-off handbuilt ceramics in a stoneware clay which are then carefully burnished pieces.

I try to impart energy and movement into my pieces whilst also instilling a sense of harmony and poise. Although my work is made with an eye to the possibility of function, this is balanced by a sculptural context to the forms and the concept of container carries only an aesthetic and symbolic value.

They are made contemplatively, for reflection, with the abstract and organic combining forces.

I have had several awards and have taken part in numerous international exhibitions.

More About Tina Vlassopulos

IconInspires

What inspires you?

My interest in the performing arts is pivotal to my work and I try to instil a sense of movement and poise in each individual piece while also creating harmony. My primary concerns are the concept, aesthetics, pushing clay to its limits and the exploration of new forms and ideas.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I like the immediacy of using clay straight out of the bag and finishing my pieces by burnishing, which gives them depth and tonal variation. The rhythmical movements of burnishing combined with the physical control needed to achieve a finished piece (without any mishaps), is complemented by the delightfully free technique of hand building, which is full of endless possibilities.
