Designer Maker based in Cardiff, Wales
Clio set up her business in 2018 after years of searching for her passion. She grew up in the little island of Cyprus but now lives in Cardiff, Wales. Anastasiou has a background in architecture but it took her a while to discover her love for all things wood!
Clio wanted to promote a different way of seeing, of a material that is otherwise taken for granted, through the creation of contemporary woodturned homeware. All products are handmade and inspired by the celebration of nature. She strives to pay respect to the natural form of wood and to focus on the raw qualities of the grain. To achieve this, she experiments with scale, as well as the combination of locally sourced wood and resin, to create material hybrids and preserve nature in time.
All wood is locally and sustainably sourced and waste is minimised by creating smaller products out of offcuts, which makes each item truly one off and unique.
Why discard a type of wood when it can provide you with the freedom of endless material choice? No shrub stem is too slim; to tree branch is too small to prevent its use in the process of making.
