VISIT GREECE| Ceramic Art or pottery has been marking eras and millennia. It has been turning natural material into useful objects of high aesthetics. It has been giving evidence about that culture, as pottery accounts for the most numerous objects of the same category found in any archaeological excavation! The more recent days of glory of the Greek ceramic art have been spent in the mainland & on several islands (Thasos, Lesvos, Samos, Crete, Skyros, Aegina, Rhodes, Sifnos).
