Hanne mi artist & sculptor
Ceramic art is one of the oldest traditions - clay for sculpturing was first used in the Paleolithic culture some 20, 000 years ago, and the use of clay as a medium for pottery was discovered in 6000 B.C. The Greek history of ceramics dates back to the year 1000 BC.
Hanne Mi is one of the best ceramic artists on the island working from her studio in Vasilikos, in the South of Zakynthos. You can find her charming studio exhibition on your way to the region of Gerekas she is located on the right hand-side of the road a few hundred metres before the main road down to Gerekas.
She fires her work in a gas kiln, reaching 1260 degrees, making the ceramics incredibly durable. Her work includes tiles suitable for floors and walls, sculptures, fountains, pottery mugs, plates and salad bowls.
I am seldom satisfied with a finished piece. This I believe is necessary. If not, I would be finished as a creator and empty of ideas. I am always trying to make my work better. It is like a mania. Always better and a little different. I never say no to a job, even if I am not sure when I accept the work how I will create it.
Believing that a wide variety of qualities are required to work as an ceramics artist, such as fantasy, flexibility, stubbornness, marketing skills, and patience, Hanne Mi explains It really is a life style. You will not succeed if you only look at clay as a job. It has to be something you enjoy.
