Flaw Project is a small women-owned business run by two sisters, Stella and Eleftheria Iosifidou. The two sisters create a variety of clay decorative items combining vintage with contemporary art. Eleftheria is the one who makes all the clay work while Stella is behind all of the acrylic painting and freehand designs. Each item is handmade and hand decorated and has its own little “flaws”. Flaw Project values flaws and turns them into works of art since Stella and Eleftheria believe that it is these flaws and imperfections that make their items beautiful and, most importantly, unique.
Stella was born in Drama and studied Philosophy and Education at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She took painting lessons at a young age and experimented with various media, styles and techniques. However, she found true inspiration in iconography and oil painting. She has been painting professionally for over 15 years, undertaking regular commissions.
Eleftheria was born in Drama. She studied English Language and Literature at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and she holds a master’s degree in Education in EFL Teachers’ Training. She has always shown a keen interest in handicraft artefacts and has dabbled in knitting, craft projects with modeling clay and jewelry making. The joy and satisfaction she derived from playing with clay impelled her to take pottery classes.
