Artist bio: Originally from Greece, I studied Jewelry Design & Making for 12 years in Athens Greece before moving to the Seattle area. Here, I started Porpe Artifacts studio to escape from my corporate life and pursue what I love most.
My work tends to be sculptural, combining unexpected materials with metal in a striking contemporary design. But equally important are the stories that inform the collections. I create inspiration notes, or intentions, that frame each of the collections. Often, these intentions center around creating a live interaction between the piece and the person who will eventually wear it. I want every piece to call out someone specifically, helping them express their individuality.
