About me

Me and my Greek armor in Metapontum, late 90's. Many thanks to Gemma for this picture. It reminds me the nostalgic look of the poet Constantinos Cavafis as in the poem "On the Italian seashore", where a young guy from Magna Graecia is watching with melancholy the decline of the ancient world.     Kemos Menedorou, a young Italian,    He spends his life among the amusement;    as very common for those young guys in Magna Graecia    which grow among riches.    But for today it is enough, therefore against its nature.    Thoughtful and sorrowful next to the seashore    and with great melancholia, He is staring at the ships    that unload the sack of the Peloponnese.    The Greek loot, the sack of Corinth.    Ah, for sure today it is not regular,    it is not possible for the young Italian    to have, for fun, any kind of desire.

Kemos Menedorou, a young Italian,

He spends his life among the amusement;

as very common for those young guys in Magna Graecia

which grow among riches.

But for today it is enough, therefore against its nature.

Thoughtful and sorrowful next to the seashore

and with great melancholia, He is staring at the ships

that unload the sack of the Peloponnese.

The Greek loot, the sack of Corinth.

Ah, for sure today it is not regular,

it is not possible for the young Italian

to have, for fun, any kind of desire.

My name is Eustace, I was born in Southern Italy and since young age I have expressed a great interest for the Ancient Greek Art. I studied Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and quite soon I also found myself to be also attracted by Sculpture and Ancient Architecture. Because English Art & Crafts always fascinated me, in 2012 I decided to move to London where I had the chance to be involved in the local pottery-ceramic scene especially once started working with the Turning Earth project. Here I began to experience the possibilities of different intriguing materials such the Parian Porcelain that I found particularly suitable with my idea of a solar Mediterranean elegance. In my News section you will see that each project is followed by a brief description about my inspiration while in my Shop section I tend to explain more about my style. New projects are coming and will involve both indoor and outdoor Decor & Design plus some pottery ideas.

My mission is to make everyday spaces more harmonious through the refined sobriety of the Greek style. I hope you will enjoy.

About my Projects

DSC_0236.jpg

What defines me and my style is without doubt the Doric Rhythm. During my journeys in both Greece and Magna Graecia, among the archaeological places which had a great impact on me it was Olympia. There, I was so impressed by the Doric Style and the sense of harmonic -eurhytmic- interchange between Nature and Architecture. So that, and thanks to my passionate school studies in geometry, I tried to find a mathematical way to build a Doric column as a paper craft. Soon, I realized that the naked simplicity of the Doric is not that easy to be understood since it is made by precise proportions and complex aesthetic analogies such as the golden ratio. Following this studies, I chose as a metric reference the Classical Foot of 32.83 cm, and finally I found a solution that I always aim to refine over time. In parallel, as I was constantly experimenting with different sculpture materials, I realized that ceramics could perfectly suit with my Doric project. From that moment on, I started with building plaster molds using my paper-crafts and eventually expanding this technique to other architectural elements.

My projects at the moment concern a series of relief tiles in the shape of the basic elements of the Doric Frieze as for the Metopes and Triglyphs. Following the Doric inspiration, I designed a vase in the shape of a Greek Column as well as a Lamp that is also a porcelain hollowing Lamp and Aroma Diffuser. In my News section you will see that each project is followed by a brief description about my inspiration while in my Shop section I tend to explain more about my style.
