‘Circles’ collection evolves around the idea that there are no straight lines in the Universe. Perceiving the visible world through perfect circles that are our eyes, all we see are parts of Circles. This matches the notion of the Circle being the mother of all shapes. ‘Circles’ was the designer’s deputing collection launched in 1998 in Nicosia Cyprus and exhibited in Athens and New York in 2000. The collection initially pertained 40, later 50 pieces, all handcrafted or sculpted by Maria Kotsoni using traditional techniques and the lost wax process.
