Anthia Barboutsis is an art jeweller from Toronto, Canada. She studied Material Art and Design at OCAD University in Toronto, and graduated in 2021. Anthia's work is rooted in the realm of traditional craft, but often draws inspiration from contemporary art and design practices. With an interest in both history and philosophy, Anthia tends to blend disciplines with ideas from across academic fields, with her specialty in the merging of textile and jewellery techniques to create detailed works of jewellery. Anthia works in hand weaving and braiding techniques in silver and gold, often playing with colours through different finishes and natural stones to create depth and visual weight in her pieces. Anthia has received the Carol Rapp Award for her thesis work, shown at OCAD's graduate exhibition, and has also won the Daniel Artscape Emerging Artist Award from her participation in the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair last year. Along with donating work for auction with OCAD's Project 31, she has collaborated with Vancouver based tea company, TEALEAVES, to create work centered around the modern tea ritual. Anthia is a gallery artist at L.A Pai Gallery in Ottawa, where she exhibits her pieces and takes commission from, and in December, Anthia was featured in Heusers Magazine in a special insert on the Jewelry Drops exhibition as a part of Jewelry Week Milan.
