Mimi Logothetis is an artist living and working in Cedar Grove, NC. A Greek/South African, originally from New Jersey and Washington, DC, she received her BFA Summa Cum Laude from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Working primarily in clay, specifically porcelain, she creates both functional and sculptural work for the home and jewelry as wearable art for the body. Porcelain is preferred for its purity, starkness, density, strength and translucency. On the surface of the work, either as an accent, or as an encompassing pattern, as fabric, Mimi uses a proprietary printing technique to apply graphics referencing historical Greek pottery and transferware traditions. Both as image and pattern or texture, the wet clay is decorated, to tell stories or wry jokes. Her work focuses on environmental issues, man vs. nature and human interpersonal issues, man vs. man. Sculpturally, Mimi uses light inside very thin, translucent walls to illuminate ideas from within.
