"… weaving a little story / I can’t wait for you to wear it…" -K.Palamas.
8 little pieces woven with a portable loom using seagrasses from the Pacific Ocean (Zostera marina), seagrasses from the Aegean Sea (Posidonia oceanica), washed out plastic strings and threads, fishing lines from long line fishing abandoned in the sea bed of Alyki (Paros).

Special thanks to Cycladic Diving for cleaning the sea bed from the plastic and for offering me the gifts.

"Wedding dress / inscape", 2012-15, made of crocheted sea grasses from the Pacific Ocean (Zostera marina), found strings and nautical ropes.
