Our work with Artists, Georgios Kastriotis στο MuseumMasters.gr

The artist Georgios Kastriotis was born in Athens on June 14, 1899. Life brought him so that the boy whose grandparents' roots were in Athens, could grow up in Paris. There he went to school, making his first statues of plasticine and clay. Good in Mathematics, he enrolled at the School of Engineering in Lausanne. He fell ill and did not finish. So he found himself again for two years in Paris, (1926-1928) which marked the path of his life.

The great French sculptor Antoine Bourdelle, deeply impressed by the talent of the young Greek who did not want to become an engineer but an artist, took him to teach him.

Our work with Artists, Georgia Kotretsos στο MuseumMasters.gr

Throughout the years we, Philippakis Art workshops, have been blessed to work with various artists, well known, upcoming, beginers and all this time we have been discovering that its them who have taken as a step further. Together we have found new ways of coating various materials with metal, from shape, material absorbency, final formation to the exhibit itself. We are very fortunate to be able to work with them from the very begining of their projects. Many times we are both astonished from the output of their work and we are very satisfied to see that it was more than what they have expected!

Today we are going to present to you one of the projects that we have worked on with Georgia Kotretsos.

Our work with Artists, Marios Voutsinas στο MuseumMasters.gr
Born in the City of Light, Paris, in the early 1950s, Marios Angelos Voutsinas was shaped and influenced by the political and social unrest that followed in the next two decades.
His artistic work focuses on man and exudes the simplest but also strong emotions that permeate us every day: loneliness, joy, sadness, indifference, enthusiasm. Microscopy and jewelry are the two areas in which he has gathered all his talent.

Museum of Maritime Tradition and Sponge fishing of New Koutali, Lemnos στο MuseumMasters.gr

The small but most important museum that was created in the town of Nea Koutali on the island of Lemnos is another project that we decided we wanted to deal with. It was founded by the refugees of 1922 who dealt almost exclusively with sponge harvesting and the elaboration of the sponges. The exhibits of the Museum of Maritime Tradition and Sponge Fishing of New Koutali, show the naval tradition of the refugees from the island of Koutali in the Sea of Marmara before their uprooting, the sponge harvesting and the elaboration of the sponges. It displays the archaeological collection of Nea Koutali, which consists of items, that the sponge divers collected from the depths of the sea.

PHILIPPAKIS ART workshops in Athens - 55 years of handmade creations and great collaborations! 

It is true that artwork created by hand preserves its value throughout the years. Having studied ancient Greek art and craftsmanship of metal processing, we create in our workshops selected artwork. The method we use, Electroforming, gives us the ability to have results of great detail in the copy produced, since our know-how in mold creation gives us the ability to work with original findings without spoiling them.

More than five decades now, the creation of such artwork in museum replicas, sculpture, jewelry, interior decoration and business gifts, is the exclusive BUSINESS of the Philippakis workshops. Working with various materials, such as, silver, copper, bronze, aluminum, marble and resin, we create artwork of high aesthetic. Absolute consistency, creative mood and above all, guarantee of originality characterize each and every cooperation that we engage in.
