Pottery Shop welcomes you to its website which combines the Minoan tradition with the art and variety of handmade pottery with their natural durability to time and weather conditions (frost, snow…), creating masterpieces of Art Pottery in jars and flower pots.
The art of ceramics in Crete and its history are lost back in time, in Minoan Era. The first reports which assure the existence of cretan ceramics, appear at the end of the 16th century, which official documents of the archives of Venetian domination, report Thrapsano as potters’ village, pointing out their long-lasting tradition to the Art of Pottery.
In Crete, the Minoan traditional handmade pottery, in jars and flowerpots, is still continued in our workshop «Pottery Shop». We have abandoned neither the traditional patterns nor the traditional techniques. The same movements of the hands, the same tools and the same relationship between the chief potters and their apprentices.
Today we manufacture the well-known to everybody cretan ceramics. We not only offer, a wide range of handmade jars and flowerpots but also a huge variety in techniques.
Our products are 100% ecological. They are baked in a traditional woodfire kiln while cretan earth and water are the only materials we use. They are also environmentally friendly and have high frost and moisture resistance.
