Maria Militsi employs the potential of objects as echoes of experience, as fragments of memory and as markers of loss. She is interested in things that are ordinary and familiar but have a strangeness to them, and seeks to bring different objects and ideas into close relationship to form new meanings. Militsi first trained at the Mokume School of Jewellery in Greece before gaining a BA (Hons) in Jewellery from Middlesex University in 2006, and an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery from the Royal College of Art in 2008. She held the post of Head Designer at a jewellery company in Thessalonika (1995 – 2002) before establishing her own art-jewellery practice, and has exhibited internationally, in London, New York, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Japan.
Militsi's major series Ballet-to-Remember was purchased for the Crafts Council Collection in 2010, and Fragments of Memory, her solo exhibition at Marsden Woo Project Space, took place in November/December 2011.
