Flux Studio is the workshop of Greek jewellery artists, Evangelia Savinidis and Thanos Gattos.
They met in 1999 and shared their lives and love of jewellery, after having both gathered experience and skills in previous projects and jobs. They have, since then, been developing their own vision of contemporary jewellery.
For Evangelia and Thanos, jewellery is more than adornment. It is a means of expression and communication, as much for them as for the person who chooses to wear it.
OUR AIM IS FOR WOMEN TO FIND IN OUR CREATIONS AN EXPRESSION OF THEMSELVES, A MEANS OF REINFORCING THEIR PERSONALITY.
Minimalism and abstraction have always been present throughout the history of artistic creation in a fruitful dialogue with the prevailing artistic movements of each period in history. Witness the cave paintings of ancient man, the Doric order here, in Greece, as well as our Cycladic sculptures.
This minimalist approach to archetypal forms and shapes, is the creative space where Evangelia and Thanos feel comfortable and inspired to conceive their creations, with which they achieve a unique fusion of delicate minimalism, organic geometry and bold elegance.
“Flux” comes from the Latin word fluxus and describes ongoing change which, for Evangelia and Thanos, is the definition of life and creativity.
Yet there’s always something absolute in the nature of an object in the world of applied and decorative artforms. That’s the challenge we confront daily in our work. It requires a mental “state of ongoing change” to create something definite and lasting that embodies the intended essence of beauty.
Evangelia studied silversmithing and jewellery design in Thessaloniki.
By the age of 20, she had already worked in several workshops and collaborated in a cooperative project for functional objects made from diverse materials, as well as starting her own jewellery workshop.
Thanos studied traditional and contemporary silversmithing and jewellery design in Stemnitsa – Arkadia and in Thessaloniki.
He has worked as a prototype manufacturer and as a jewellery design tutor.
From 1999 until 2004, they worked and created together in Thessaloniki, as well as participating regularly in commercial and artistic jewellery expositions. Their work has been exhibited in galleries and shops throughout Greece and Europe and examples of their work can be seen in private collections.
In 2004 they decided to leave the “big city” and live in the stripped-down environment of the Mediterranean landscape of Messinia, in the southern Peloponnese. There, they set out to fulfill their dream, to build their own home and studio in the foothills of Mount Taygetus, in the countryside outside Kalamata. Since 2014, in this space, in surroundings of great natural beauty, they find inspiration for their work.
