“...failure with clay was more complete and more spectacular than with other forms of art. You are subject to the elements... Any one of the old four - earth, air, fire, water - can betray you and melt, or burst, or shatter - months of work into dust and ashes and spitting steam. You need to be a precise scientist, and you need to know how to play with what chance will do to your lovingly constructed surfaces in the heat of the kiln.” A.S. Byatt, The Children’s Book

SET THE TALBE “...In the beginning God gave to every people a cup of clay, and from this cup, they drank their life.’’ Northern Paiute Proverb

As long as humans have been serving food on ceramic dishes, we have been concerned with the appearance of those dishes. Tableware - more than cooking pots and storage jars - has a long association with sociability and ritual, status and display.

“...a prehistoric homemaker smeared the interior of a basket with clay to seal it so that she could prevent the seeds, nuts, and berries she wanted to save , from slipping through the open weave. Then one of her children, left the mud-lined basket too near the fire and the reeds burned away. The clay remained intact and magically hardened in the fire. A pot!’’ The Jomon’s invention of pottery

(The Jōmon period 縄文時代 is the time in Japanese prehistory, traditionally dated between c. 14,000–300 BCE)

MRZ Studio consist of Georgia Mouratidou and Stavros Kotsikas. Both suffering of artistic and other neuroses, the last three years, they compose ceramics and images whose main feature is the receptive attitude toward cultural degeneration. Trying to re-shape soil and color MRZ Studio captures the essence of craftsmanship and stays close to the creating process of its carefully handmade products. The group’s headquarters are transferred regularly from Athens to London and to the mountains of Arcadia, in a geographic triangle that constantly renews Freudian saturations and creative discontinuities.
