Ceramics in Serifos

Kerameio is a pottery studio and shop in Kato Hora in Serifos. A large range of ceramic pieces was on display when I visited, some made in the studio and some from ceramicists from all over Greece. It was very difficult to work out the names of the makers, so I gave up in the end.

A second shop, in Livadi, owned by the same people

sells clothes, jewellery, and some ceramics too

Finally, a re-working of Cycladic art,  a sculpture made out of pumice stone, by Dimitris Psomodotis,
which now hangs on a wall of our minimalist terrace.


  1. What is the 'cycladic concept'?
    I wondered if the ceramic figures with what look like 'sosivio' rings hanging from their necks were representations of the refugees. I find them moving.

    1. I wondered about 'cycladic concept' too, Olga: all I could think of is style/art influenced by Cycladic art. I should have asked them, really.

      The figures are moving indeed, particularly placed as a group, as they are in the shop.

      I enjoyed my visit to the shop, and the prices were a fraction of what they would be charging in Athens.
