Pottery Art / Handmade pottery workshop
Preserving pottery, a traditional craft of Crete with roots in 7000 BC,
while developing it so as to serve the modern decorative and utility needs,
Michalis Houlakis is engaged in this art more than 25 years.
Designs of ceramic pots that were found in archaeological sites of the Minoan period are included in his selection: Knossos, Pithari, Pithos, Koronios, Minoiko, Mpogiatzopitharo, Brika, Amphoreas. Still handmade, shaped on pottery wheels and wood fired in kilns burnt with olive seeds, his pots and planters are characterized by the unique aesthetic of Greek pottery of Thrapsano. With new designs he is trying to serve the needs of modern homes and gardens: Munich, Electra, Icarus, Panos, Voni, Spiros.
Extra care is taken for the strength and longevity of the ceramics with the use of anti-frost and water-proof materials. With respect to the environment, natural and environmentally-friendly water-based materials are exclusively used in our "handmade pottery for sale".
