adopting its name from an area in athens that was known for centuries as the potters’ quarter, the collection reflects an aesthetic that was originally established by ancient greek ceramicists. the paper spun pieces abstractly replicate foreign objects that filtered into greece through trade to influence its developing aesthetic.
