http://www.newmen.eu/pigils/niodjr/227 Inspiration can come from anywhere at any time. Outdoor excursions are often the instigator of my creative process. I sketch, photograph, and collect objects from Nature. Sometimes, I surround myself with them for inspiration. Other times, I incorporate these objects into my work. Trips to the homeland of my parents Greece often inspire my work. The sea, or more specifically, marine creatures and other beauty of the deep-sea ecosystems that shelter them, are the basis of this work. These pieces are meant to investigate some of these forms.

source url I have been utilizing leather in my work for a number of years. I felt that leather was still applicable for some of the pieces in this series of oceanic forms in combination with other materials like different colored and textured leathers, corals, onyx, and stingray. Using materials from the ocean like the corals seemed logical, compatible and stayed within the self-proclaimed color restricted theme of black, white, red that I had put as a guideline.

The elements of gold, leather and coral create an interesting dialogue and balance in these pieces. The combinations possess a variety of dichotomies: precious versus non-precious materials and hard versus soft materials.
