Thrapsano - Cretan Ceramic Art


knossos_ceramicsMinoan civilisation has drawn its freshness and inventiveness from the magnificent diversity of Cretan nature.
This same diversity has instilled in the inhabitants of Minoan Crete the ability to transform the earth into ceramics of the highest quality.

Minoan ceramists reach the peak of their artistic expression creating beautiful and extraordinarily technical ceramic pots, which depict with great vitality and exquisite design the animal and plant kingdom of Minoan Crete.

Within the same natural environment and in the same great tradition, the potters of Thrapsano continue to create masterpieces worthy of the art of Minoan pottery.

The "MINOS" Potters Co-operative of Thrapsano was established in 1977 by the potters of Thrapsano with the aim of cooperation in the production and distribution of ceramic products.

From then until now the Potters Co-operative of Thrapsano has worked tirelessly reaching the highest standards and ranks first in preference for foreigners as well as Greeks who work in the field of ceramics.
