Kelly's Notes.. Although my visit felt like a series of coincidences and unusual events, I couldn’t help but feel that the happenings on the evening of my visit with Yianni were not unusual at all.. I spent a few hours with Yianni discussing the evolution of his culture, art, business, family, and ethical ideas.. Throughout our conversation, he was attentive, grateful, generous, informative, excited, and passionate.. It was easy for me to envision a customer in his store becoming excited right along with him as he spoke about the inspirations and meanings behind his works.. There is always a meaning, and usually a very honest one; one that we can all relate to.. After about an hour, a group of previous customers had stopped by to say good-bye to Yianni and purchase a few more items they hadn’t been able to shake from their minds.. I was amazed to see such an interested group.. They were all vocal about their own passion for his work and made many unsolicited offers to tell friends and family back home about Yianni.. I captured a few photos of them in the store.. One of which is ... thought in making the sculpture.. If you ever get a chance to email through the description it would be very much appreciated.. Regards,.. Penny Stansfield, Australia.. Hello Yannis,.. We have returned to the states after a wonderful stay at our home in Faliro for the first half of summer..
