About Mimi Logothetis
I work in porcelain, because of its starkness, purity, strength and translucence, all depending on its manipulation. I use symbolic images and decorate the wet clay with a proprietary printing process with which I assemble and layer to create a story, a joke or a surreal visual landscape. My hand built work is constructed to show process: seams, glue, rivets, etc. or to resemble paper, speaking to the nature of preciousness and permanence vs. fragility and disposability. The imagery is a pictorial narrative speaking mainly of environments: physical, socio-political, and personal.
