Papadopoulou's Ceramics...
A text from Susanne schmidt*

Papadopoulou’s ceramics seem absolutely harmonic at first glance, but the charm of her work lies in the countless contradictions that she so easily entangles. She constantly moves on a tightrope, between old and new, traditional and innovative, classic handmade and modern design. She joins the substance of the material and the traditional ceramic manufacturing methods with the modernism of the futurist design. Finally, she demands inescapable functionality of the items and constantly flirts with the boldness of transformation.    
* Susanne Schmidt is the ceramicist behind "Die Hausfrau" ceramics and owner of the famous "Café Libre" in Höhr-Grenzhausen.

raw materials

"As a former environmentalist, I am constantly trying to produce conscientiously, with respect for the environment, raw materials and natural resources.
For the same reason, I make sure that all prints and packaging are made from recycled paper or cardboard and our packages are reusable"
