In a short distance from Emporios you will find the village of Armolia. It’s a village with a long tradition in pottery. Once it supplied with ceramic goods not only the surrounding islands and the coast of Asia Minor, but almost the rest of Greece.
Pottery is an ancient type of art, simple and primitive. At the same time is the purest, the most sincere and rewarding type of art: it 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.
