Pottery

The village of Armolia in the South of Chios and in a short distance from Emporios, is a village with a long tradition of pottery and once supplied with ceramic goods not only the surrounding islands and the coast of Asia Minor, but almost the rest of Greece.

A kind of art seemingly so simple and primitive, but at the same time the purest, the most sincere and rewarding, which inspires the harmonious collaboration between the human beeing and the nature. The only things needed, is soil and water, love, passion and skill, for the artist to create master pieces.

Today in the remaining workshops someone can see the hospitable artists in the process of their performance, reviving a past which seems so distant. These friendly potters will gladly reveal the secret of their extraordinary art.
