Pottery is the manufacture of ceramic art. One of the most ancient arts that have been recorded with archaeological finds that characterize the culture of each season.

Wet clay takes the desired form from human hands and dried to obtain a solid form. Later will be baked in a special oven to increase its mechanical strength.

Because of the ease in creating desired shapes such as pots and figurines, but also the strength of ceramics in time, the pottery is the art / technology for which there are very old archaeological findings.

Modern traditional pottery is the end of the long history of Greek pottery. With origins in the Byzantine period and even earlier and new directions which meet the habits and needs of an era with particularly difficult economic and social conditions, formed its own morphological and stylistic features, as simply utilitarian shapes, simple decor and design.
