She is part of « Pilino soma » , Ceramic Jewelers Association -Greece. Pilinosoma is a group, a community made up of people involved in the ceramic jewelry. We think, we feel, we gesture always driven from our material which is none other than the earth, clay and porcelain. We seek the composition that contributes the harmony of the fragility of the clay component, made ornament as resting on the body. We are fighting for its place in the world of contemporary art jewelry.
I could say I love ALL what Dora Haralambaki makes …. since I know her …. I could show you here latest works, presented at last JOYA 2015, her « EGGS NOT FED » serie, but when I « rhink Dora Haralambaki », my first « vision » id a red & white vision ……. so let’s have a « first vision » here ……
« Refugees; away from their country, away from their home. Fear, persecution, uprooting.
And then an attempt of integration in a society hostile towards the foreign body. An attempt to maintain individuality and a distinct culture through habits, tastes, aromas, mannerisms which are getting attached to the different circumstances of the new land.
Attachments that are being carried as luggage to serve the need of memory; attachments that contribute to the continuation of flow, as well as to the assimilation within this new life. »
