Thanos Karonis presence and participation in the creation of the Greek Marble Initiative and the Summer Symposium 2013 it held in Souroti was crucial. Apart from excellent sculptures, Karonis contributed his experience in the organization of Symposiums he had organized himself for several years, introducing us in time with the several aspects an effort like this is comprised from. He was also one of the people who stayed longer, and produced many pieces during his stay. His artwork delivering something of the human form in conjunction with the organic patterns found in nature, hold a special charm. He himself is a perfectionist, though he doesn’t wish to admit it. His works were polished and undertaken many times before its conclusion, while the more raw in appearance pieces were treated again and again till every single curve has gotten its particular angle and incision.
