Meet Glega, 

Founder and Artist

GLEGA MINAIDIS CERAMICS

Could you tell us a little bit more about yourself and what made you start the business? 

 

Throughout life, I have used my creativity and love of making as a balance to my very practical career in Operations. A few years ago, at the suggestion of a friend, I signed up to a short ceramics course and here we are. Ceramics have grounded me, taught me that there are certain things you can't control and it has slowed the pace down. However, there is always that push to learn more, to make more, to experiment, explore and strive forward.  

 

The business is still in its very early stages, it evolved from an initial need to empty my home of all the ceramics I made but actually once I started to interact with customers, sell and get their feedback I was hooked.  Lockdown was also a catalyst, I wasn't able to visit the communal studio and I hence I had time to focus on creating a selling platform and promoting my ceramics via social media. 

What inspires your work? 

Inspiration from travels, my Greek heritage and the desire to slow down all filter through into my work. When I look at my landscape plates I can see the Kyrenia Mountains of Cyprus or the undulating hills of Sifnos in the shapes and shadows, the occasional blues are a glimpse of the Aegean and their simplified form reflects a simpler outlook on life.


What is the most important thing for you in your business?

To keep a certain individualism, to craft, collaborate and keep exploring.  Sustainability and responsible production also play a part, all items are made with clay sourced from deposits in the UK, each piece is considered before firing to ensure minimal use of energy and all packaging is recyclable and plastic-free.
