A few words about the artist - Manolis Patramanis was born in 1965 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.
From 1983 until 1986 he studied at the Pottery Workshop as the School of Free Studies at Kolymbari near Xania. He attended seminars in aesthetics, clay firing, ceramic technology, clay bodies and high temperature glazes and also ‘Formula Seger’.
He has participated in commercial exhibitions on his home island of Crete, as well as in Athens and in Frankfurt, Germany, and has presented works in a group exhibition of Cretan Artists. More recently (2006) he exhibited in a travelling exhibition featuring ceramic artists from Crete, the Greek mainland and Cyprus.
He has also worked as an instructor in seminars organised by the Centre for Professional Training.
In 1988 he set up his own workshop in Heraklion where he still lives and works with his wife to this day.
The popular ‘puzzle’ series (right~) depict man’s struggle to break through the puzzles of the earth, the sky, and the mind.
