THE CRETAN POT SHOP

Welcome to the UK's finest collection of terracotta pots, oil jars and urns born of the Aegean island of Crete.

We specialise in these beautiful and unique ceramics that epitomise Mediterranean and Greek culture.

All our pots are hand-thrown by the award winning potter Manolis Volyrakis and his family team and then fired in a traditional wood-burning kiln (rather than the more prevalent gas-fired kilns now found in Crete); a process that gives our pots their attractive varying soft shades of tan that change with the light.

No two pots are exactly alike.

Guaranteed frost-proof.
