A collection of functional pottery we've created with passion
With the goal of spreading the love of pottery locally and abroad, we decided to create "Cretan Spiral Pottery", a small local business. Our studio is situated in our family's olive farm by the sea, in eastern Crete.
How I came about to become a professional potter, dates back to the early 2000's, when I was introduced to pottery by a third-generation Cretan potter. He had a small studio in our farm, where he mostly made ceramic bottles where we would store and sell our olive oil. As years went by, we developed a student-mentor relationship, which led to my 9 years of throwing and glazing experience.
At first, having grasped the basics of pottery on the wheel, showing a lot of persistence on the fundamentals, I decided to start helping guests make their own pots. For over 6 years, I have developed a more structured way of sharing my knowledge with guests.
"Cretan Spiral Pottery" focuses more around functional pottery and tailor-made workshops for all levels, following traditional techniques, while using locally-produced clay.
