Portrait of Claudia
Claudia forms part of the 'Conversations with Friends Collection', which consists of abstract ceramic portraits of Tina's friends, representing each one's character, disposition and psyche in a subjective and symbolic way. It is not a literal representation, but rather an attempt to give a sense of Claudia's character in visual form using symbolism and allegory. It was made in defiance of the cacophony of the digital age, challenging the prevalence of one-way communication. The piece is a celebration of friendship, and the importance of dialogue and conversation.
Portrait of Claudia is an abstract portrait by ceramicist Tina Vlassopulos of her dear friend Claudia. The piece evokes Claudia's spirit - a Punk rock singer with an altruistic heart.
