MX Ceramics was founded in 2017 in Naoussa by ceramicist and graphic designer Maria Chatzinikolaki. The artist runs both the studio and the shop alone, the first during the day and the second in the afternoon. She creates several artworks in the shop to present the process and communicate through her art. Her inspirations include art movements, nature, fashion and ancient civilizations.
Her works present abstract shapes and detailed patterns, explaining the artist’s fascination with unique and weird formations that she often tries to emulate. Many of her ceramics exhibit black-and-white or earthy color palettes and intricate, elaborate decorations. One can find beautiful vases and dinnerware in the shop as well as captivating ornaments, such as interestingly painted and sculpted rocks.
