At the beginning of time, the universe was submerged in darkness, cold and silence. But the darkness had charm; the cold had tension and the silence had peace. Their appearance may have looked threatening and inhospitable to us, but in fact it was nothing more than an empty canvas looking forward for light, color and life. It was then that they decided to make the beginning, so the darkness receded, the cold lowered its intensity and the silence spoke and said a single word that echoes over the centuries to the end of the universe, even to this day and that word was … Life.
From that magical moment the tree of life was born, and that in turn created two spirits the Sun and the Moon.
The Sun and the Moon fell in love, and their love filled the universe with light and colors.
But it was time for the two lovers to be separated. The Sun had to stay steady and the Moon to travel away to create life elsewhere.
The Sun, seeing in the face of the Moon the pain of separation, which he felt within himself, embraced her and began to spin with her in the center of the universe. The vortex of their love created colorful spiral nebulae, which became the place where the stars were born, and as the moon moved away, the planets were created.
The distant and lonely journey of the Moon brought her close to a lonely planet, and the moon immediately realized that she had reached her destination. But this planet was dark. With the Sun so far away from her and without any other way of communicating with him, she had to find a way to pull his gaze where she was.
So the Moon gave this planet her beautiful light and the blue color was created for the first time in the universe.
The beauty of the planet drew the attention and warmth of the Sun, and as his life-rays touched the earth and its seas, life was created.
But the Moon could never return to his side, because in order to create another form of life she had to sacrifice the very light of her existence. But the eternal love of the sun for her finally found the way, albeit from afar, to stay with her forever.
So in every life that began to be created, he placed a spiral to remind her of his love, and she in the blue waters of the sea creates vortexes until this day to remind him the intensity of her love for him.
And when the night succeeds the day, he embraces her with his light, restoring the magic of her existence.

A few words about Nicoletas Psalti Creations
All the artworks of Nikoleta Psalti are original and unique. The predominant elements of her creations are the natural materials it uses, which are mainly collected from the seashores and the seabed of the Greek seas.
For the first time, the humble pebbles become elegant jewels. Seaweeds and corals decorate lamps and furniture. The unique beauty of the natural wood that the artist collects from the seashores and the forests is transformed into eccentric furniture and lamps that illuminate uniquely the spaces in which they are placed.
The combination of plexi glass with the natural materials is not accidental. The transparency of plexi glass reveals and highlights the natural elements, that in Nikoleta Psalti hands become unique and eccentric pieces of art.
Silver and ivory are two materials that the creator combines with the warmth of wood, creating a unique balance between light diffusion and the reflections that these materials create in the space.
The ultimate goal of Nikoletas Psalti artworks is to create an interaction between the human senses and the natural materials that occupy a space.
The paintings of Nikoleta Psaltis depict the tree of life and its particular symbolism.
«I love the tree of life, because it has many symbolisms. It is the tree of wisdom, beauty, protection, abundance and power. With the different materials I use it can take more forms and symbolisms. »
The value of Nikoletas Psalti creations is priceless. Each of her creations comes from her heart and are expressed in the simplest, most honest and dynamic way, drastically influencing the atmosphere of the space
