The magical ceramic ART of Stamatis Ftoulis...


Δεν έχω καμιά αμφιβολία γιατί ο Σταμάτης Φτούλης διάλεξε να ζωγραφίζει τα μαγικά κεραμικά του δίπλα στο ανατολικό μικρό παράθυρο με τη γαλάζια θέα. Είναι ο καθημερινός του διάλογος με το πρωινό φώς μιας ανατολής που μόνο στο Αιγαίο μπορεί κανείς να συναντήσει. Ο Σταμάτης Φτούλης βλέπει & εμπνέεται ανατολικά, αναπνέει το βαθύ γαλάζιο της θάλασσας, αγγίζει τα πουλιά του Αιγαίου, θυμάται και ονειρεύεται μια ζωή χρωματιστή... 

                                                                                                                                Themis Veleris



The magical colors of ceramicist Stamatis Ftoulis...

The charismatic Stamatis Ftoulis comes from Skyros island and has been professionally engaged with traditional pottery since 1968 till today.
He is self-taught and during these decades he focuses at the Skyrian tradition, with his own creations of ceramic dishes, cups, vases, jugs etc, based on old patterns that still exist in the traditional houses of Skyros.
Notably, his work is exposed at the Modern Art Museum "Centre Georges Pompidou" in France. In 1968 he won the 2nd Award at the International Ceramics Exhibition in Frankfurt, where he competed between 25 ceramists from all over the world.
He has many years of cooperation with the Oltmans New York, which have a great number of shops with hand-made ceramics, as well with other exhibitors active in Oregon and the Santa Fe city.
He has worked with the Greek Traditional Center in Athens and also with the art stores "Tanagraia" and "Acron Ilion Crystal".
Many pottery shops from different places of Greece have purchased ceramics. His creations are exhibited in shops from Alexandroupoli to Crete and from Corfu to Cyprus .
Finally, many collective pieces exist at private collections in Athenian houses.
