The Katrakis Pot, Cook-book illustrations, 2002
These series of illustration illuminate the world of Pontus Greek cooking and traditions. The drawings journey through each meal, each chore which fills the daily existence of the village. Wether it is making cheese or harvesting that little fruit available, the process itself becomes more dominant more important then the end result. It is the process of harvest or creation that brings meaning to the meal itself and rejuvenates the tradition passed from generation to generation. The materials for the illustrations, graphite/paper, were chosen to represent the sketchy motion, the bare monotony of the steppe and the drawings of a traveler and participant in the place and its culture, reminiscent to the journals kept by the travelers before.
