Flux Studio is the creative space of Greek jewellery artists, Evangelia Savinidis and Thanos Gattos.
We met in 1999 and shared our lives and love of jewellery (making), after having both gathered experience and skills in previous projects and jobs.
Our creations are deeply inspired by ancient traditions, prehistoric, archaic and folklore motifs from many civilizations throughout world history.
The plethora of artifacts of decorative, ritual and applied arts that we inherited from our ancestors are a huge treasure where one can discover endless and recurring shapes, symbols, motifs and patterns.
Our aim is not to replicate, but to reinterpret these inspirations, while at the same time maintaining the archaic or folklore feel of them so that our collections give a sensation of findings of a forgotten ancient civilization.
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 lived and created together in Thessaloniki, in northern Greece.
In 2004 they decided to leave the “big city” and settle in the stripped-down environment of the mediterranean landscape of Messinia, in the southern Peloponnese. There, in the countryside outside the city of Kalamata, they continue their creative journey in the enchanting world of jewellery.
