Hector Mavridis is a ceramist. Dedicated in recent years to his ongoing work "Clods", he explores the imprint of the primordial form in public space. The lumps he collects from the ploughed fields are his raw material. Their shape, the smell of wet soil awaken memories. He observes them, touches them. He wants to transform them. It works with fire, water, time. His body carries the energy and his soul the inner blue color. Now the lumps become weightless, hovering over the wheat along with memories and a piece of the identity of their creator, Hector.
