Hello Atelier 026
Maybe it was the power of the Evil Eye that first attracted me to Sweet Destructor ceramics. Because once I saw those pieces, I couldn’t forget them, nor their creator, Evie Englezos. On the surface, Sweet Destructor ceramics are simple – deceptively so. For, beyond their graphic black and white surface (with just a touch of gold) lies an extensive story where mythology intertwines with nature and manifests itself in the design of a cup or dish.
Evie, herself, has a bit of an otherworldly essence, which is compounded when you see her interacting with wild animals on a daily basis. This modern-day Snow White befriends and rehabilitates wildlife, from baby birds to turtles and beyond.
