From an udu to pottery

  • • Petros studied Fine Arts but is a self-taught ceramicist
  • • He teaches work on the electric wheel and glazing techniques
  • • His workshop is near Kornos, the village of pottery

Petros Stavrou studied Fine Arts but was not inspired by any form of it, until he attempted to create an udu, a ceramic musical instrument. He immediately fell in love with pottery and has been a professional ceramicist ever since. Until lately, his practice has had a nomadic character, but he is currently putting up his workshop in Delikipos near Kornos, a village with a great tradition in ceramics. He draws inspiration from Japanese, Korean and African ceramic traditions and combines these elements with functionalism and minimalism, creating innovative designs. He particularly enjoys wheel throwing as a technique, and he also enjoys teaching and sharing his passion for his craft with others.
