Terra CottaOur pottery is the oldest working pottery in western Crete. We are a two family, nine persons, working cooperative and a traditional family business which has passed from father to son for seven generations. Our pottery is based near the city of Chania on the slopes of the local mountain.

We specialize in practical, useful ceramics of high quality and good design, ideal for daily or professional use. All our products are thrown on a potters wheel and are 100% hand crafted by members of our family. We design and make ceramics for your kitchen and dining table. These include flat plates, salad bowls, fruit bowls, breakfast bowls in many sizes, beautiful cups, goblets, wine glasses and jugs. All these items are produced in twelve different glaze colors.

We also continue to make the traditional Cretan cooking bowls, suitable for all types of oven, in a range of ten different sizes.
