For the love of clay

  • • George and Sotiroula have a shared passion for ceramics
  • • Their art has been exhibited in Cyprus and Europe
  • • They run pottery workshops for children and adults

George and Sotiroula are in love with each other and are also in love with clay. George learned the craft from his father, who was a potter. Sotiroula is a self-taught ceramicist and painter, who loved clay before she loved George. They opened their workshop in 1988 where they create useful ceramic items from teapots to table lamps. A visit to their studio-gallery is a memorable experience, immersed as it is in greenery and boasting a wonderful view. They are inspired by nature and tradition, which they fuse in their unique minimalist style. Their exclusive ceramic items are the result of years of experience and an experimental approach to creation. Their useful objects bring joy to people who hold them, reviving positive memories every time they are used.
