58 years of handmade creation
and excellent collaborations!
It is true that artwork created by hand preserves its value throughout the years. Having studied ancient Greek art and craftsmanship of metal processing, we create in our workshops selected artwork.
The method we use, Electroforming, gives us the ability to have results of great detail in the copy produced, since our know-how in mold creation gives us the ability to work with original findings without spoiling them.
More than five decades now, the creation of such artwork in museum replicas, sculpture, jewelry, interior decoration and business gifts, is the exclusive BUSINESS of the Philippakis workshops.
Working with various materials, such as, silver, copper, bronze, aluminum, marble and resin, we create artwork of high aesthetic. Absolute consistency, creative mood and above all, guarantee of originality characterize each and every cooperation that we engage in.
