On the beutiful island, Lesvos, in Greece, you will find my workshop in Stipsi, a village which is located on the north part of the island. The olivetrees, the petrified forest, the sea and the people have always inspired the artists of my homeland.
Sappho, who was born in Lesvos (600 b.c.), described in her poems all the beutiful coulors of this island, those are the coulors that I use when I handpaint the ceramics that I create on the ceramics wheel.
In my workshop the visitor has the opportunity to feel the clay and make something out of it and to decorate it with natural materials that I find myself in the fields such as ochra, terracota and different
sorts of gemstones.
Also you will find ceramics that remind you of ancient greek pottery, the amforeas.

||Generally speaking ceramics are clustered into two categories. These are called "traditional" or "advanced". The traditional category is generally the one where consumer goods are located. Anything that is used for day to day use like dishes, ovenware or other utensils that may be used in a kitchen are the traditional ceramics.
>When an industry takes ceramics to look at their other components like the mechanical, electrical, optical or other ways to use the product, it becomes a more commercial strength and is used in a bigger way. There are also refectories and they are used in iron and steel making. There are a variety of products that are made through the use of ceramics in both of these branches.
||Ceramic coatings are used a lot by the military and by other governmental divisions because they are sturdy and last a long time. In fact, ceramics have been used the space shuttle.
The biggest place that ceramics are used is in aircraft and space shuttles because the fibers act as fire protectors and thermal insulation so that the crafts won't blow up as the engines heat up. The ceramics resist heat and are light weight.
