Cretan Ceramics

Pottery Workshop - Ploumakis George

The ceramic art in our island has its roots deep in time.
The Minoans, excellent artisans, had evolved the pottery art at high levels, creating unique art Cretan ceramics, some of which you can see in the museums of all over the world.
Seeing the technique and form of these vessels, we believe that we are the modern followers of their art.
