    Description

    The development of pottery in Sifnos is mainly due to the abundance of refractory clay mixed with the availability of rainwater, suitable fuel and a mild climate, as well as the exceptional dexterity and skills of the Sifnian potters. The art has been passed from generation to generation through the centuries.

    Some of the Sifnian potters moved away to nearby or more distant islands, as evidenced by the place names that have been carried to many of the Cycladic islands, bearing witness to the settlement of the Sifnian potters. They also developed their activities in various areas of Attica on the mainland, in particular Maroussi, Halandri, and Agia Paraskevi, and some also migrated abroad.

    Today the pottery workshops of the island make household items for cooking or storage. Characteristic are the mastelo (a large baking dish for preparing the traditional meat dish of the same name in wood-burning ovens) the tsikali, jugs, the brazier, the Armeos and most characteristic of all the flaros (clay chimney). Alongside the traditional items, Sifnian potters also produce decorative objects and are always experimenting with new forms and new colours.

    As Sifnos is an island known for its traditional ceramic art, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a pottery production demonstration at one of the most famous workshops from an expert potter. The session will start with information about clay, the material used for the production and then the potter will share his knowledge and unique techniques with all the spectators. The bold ones will have the chance to test their own skills in pottery.
