Mr. Kostas Metaxas, an award winning artist-designer, drawn to the shapes and textures of old master painters and sculpture since he was a teenager. For Metaxas, designing feels euphoric. He enjoys working with various materials – metal, glass, ceramic, plastic – and subverting technology, like using dental techniques to create jewelry and watches. Both the traditional manufacturing methods and the latest software – or their combination – work great for him. He thinks of the big picture fi rst, then the details and the best methods to create them. And all of it in an environmentally friendly way.
