A Beautiful Mind

Kirios Kostas is a farmer, a builder, and a basket maker who lives in the village of Lefkes.  We visited him at his ‘studio,’ a small building in his field that has been decorated with decades of found objects arranged into little vignettes.  He made us each a bouquet of flowers, and was artful about every one: mine had lots of red geraniums, roses, rosemary, lavender and one little runner from his grape vine.  He is a rare person who sees infinite creative potential where others see trash and junk.
