The selected works include groups of two to four variants on some types, as critics agree that her work shows most strongly in such groups. Constantinidis' work is always first hand-thrown, and based on the concept of the vessel; but with the exception of her porcelain table-ware, the pots are then cut and extended in abstracting experiments with form. The work is concerned particularly with balance, as it tilts or leans asymmetrically, or on narrow bases, or narrowed or flared rims.
