Iosifina Kosma is a Greek ceramic artist living and working in Athens, Greece. Her decision to pursue the art of ceramics resulted from the attraction she felt the first moment she experimented with clay at a very young age. After graduating, she studied Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens. As Architecture may be considered large-scale sculpture, she believes that her studies have played a crucial role in developing her aesthetic. She continued with postgraduate studies in ceramics at Middlesex University, London, where she obtained a Master of Arts with merit.
She has held three solo exhibitions and participated in several group exhibitions in Greece and internationally. She has participated in international symposia in China, India, Japan, and Turkey. Since 2017 she has been a member of the International Academy of Ceramics, IAC. Her works can be found in private collections in Greece and abroad.
A central element throughout her work has always been the curve. The curve is the first shape Iosifina instinctively creates when holding a clay piece. She considers the moment of inspiration a blessing and refrains from overanalyzing it, instead allowing the process of creation to guide her.
For her latest line of artworks, Iosifina has been using her hands to create abstract, asymmetrical, sculptural forms. Working with stoneware clay, she crafts her artworks piece by piece and then connects all the parts together to bring her vision to life.
