Pottery

Make your own traditional pottery

Description

Like all other Cycladean islanders, the inhabitants of Kythnos have been familiar with the use of clay since earliest times. It has been employed for everything from the construction of cooking vessels to Kythnos beehives. The art and culture of ceramic pottery was perhaps more developed here than in other Cycladic islands in Greece, if only because of the plentiful clay to be found on the island. In addition, Kythnos is the only Cyclades where visitors will see the signature hand-made clay roof tiles, as living proof of its indigenous craftsmanship!
