About

Fishes Make Wishes

Everything started with some felting classes, our love for creating things by hand was born. Discovering new techniques and new mediums is how we've evolved as the time passes, we learn new things and improve on our old skills.

We live in the suburbs of Athens near the sea, a great source of inspiration as well as our home in the Peloponnese mountains were we spend our summers, in a small village surrounded by trees and wildlife.

Our process for creating is as different as we are between us, Aleka, a typical Gemini can work on two or more projects at a time while Georgia will take her time creating, she really doesn't like to be rushed!

Each piece is handmade with lots of love and attention, the idea of creating each piece unique and different from the next is something that speaks to us about the nature of handmade, it's not a repetitive process, it's a new discovery every time a piece is created.

We hope you like our creations as much as we do :-)
Thank you for your support
