Yiannis Assiouras is a Norwich-based Greek jeweller and artist, working mainly with silver and porcelain, avoiding naturally occurring gemstones, so that he can help to preserve earth's resources.

A lot of Yiannis' inspiration comes from Ancient Greece, with his work reflecting their traditional historic jewellery style, as well as depicting the shapes and illustrations found painted on vessels from the time. These illustrations show everyday life as it was, as well as scenes from mythology. His choice of materials and textures reflect this. He says: 'Each time I create a piece of jewellery my aim is to make a new form.'

Born in Athens and relocating to Norwich in 2015, Yiannis has been practising his craft since studying silversmithing in Greece and going on to run his own studio and sell his work. With work in The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts' shop, Assiouras' work can also be seen on his website.
