COUP de COEUR ! Efharis Alepedis

From Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence (USA). Born in 1969 in the Massachusetts . Bio sur le site de Charon Kransen Arts, où je l’ai découverte ….

structures rappelant des amalgames de microcosmes marins, coquillages, coraux…. intrigants, attirants…. en quelles matières ? mystère !

« My name is Efharis Alepedis, not the easiest name to remember or pronounce. So just call me “Effie the Greek.” I am one of two children of Greek immigrants. ….. I did not come from an art background, so art school opened up my eyes to fields that I had never heard ofbefore. Since my degree was in Art Education I was required to take a diversity of classes so that I would bewell rounded. However, after finishing my undergraduate degree, I felt the need to concentrate in the one fieldthat had caught my interest – metals/jewelry. So I went to graduate school at the Rhode Island School of Design from 1993-1995, receiving a Master in Fine Arts. This enabled me to be more competent in my field. After graduation I decided to move to Greece for a while and work at a very prominent jewelry company there known as Ilias Lalaounis, basically the « Tiffany’s of Greece ». Though I was interested in making one-of-a-kind work, I thought it would be interesting to get a taste of high-end production in the retail world. Living and working in Greece was a great experience. I moved back to the U.S. in 1996.«
