About

Influenced by Persians, Ottomans, Russians and Latin crusaders, the country of Georgia is rich in culture and story. In the heart of the country’s capital, Tbilisi, ceramist Giorgi captures this history in a nonconformist way mixing Georgian tradition with abstract motifs and pop art elements. The vases are carved with a pear-like shape, rising to a narrow neck and a flared rim. The tasteful mix of bleak and lively colours reminisce of an amazing, colourful sunset over the delicate blue of the sea. The vase is decorated with cave paintings, transporting the viewer to the early civilisations of Georgia and the beginnings of humanity, while the deep-rooted cracks give this unique piece an aura of timelessness.

About Giorgi Ustiashvili

About Giorgi Ustiashvili


Tbilisi in Georgia is a fascinating capital city with cobbled streets and buildings with bright blue balconies and red pitched roofs that straddle the deep valley carved by the Mtkvari River. It is not surprising that such a dramatic city has a lively art and cultural scene. Sitting in his workshop surrounded by tall oval vases that are dramatically decorated and beg for your attention, sits Giorgi Ustiashvili. He is carefully putting the finishing touches on a pair of matching blue jugs that form a complete circle when they stand next to each other. Giorgi's work is modern and stylish, often with metallic glazes in blues and greens with eye-catching detail in three-dimensional abstract patterns, coloured in copper, bronze or pewter. The Large vases are particularly handsome and are the perfect ornament to highlight in an alcove or fireplace in the home or office. In complete contrast, Giorgi is also fascinated by the human body and creates some fascinating figurines of men and women wearing minimal clothing and elaborate headdresses which are metallic and tactile in contrast. On the wall, there is a set of four stunning rectangular plates each with a background in shades of soft brown with the design of an impressionist nude wearing a sun hat in shades of cream with highlights in the colour of red wine. Looking at the various pieces of his work that surround him, It is not surprising that many consider Giorgi one of the capitals most exciting artisans...
