Lemba Pottery

Established in 1988 by George and Sotiroula Georgiades.  It is Situated in the small artist's village of Lemba, five Kilometers west of Paphos on the way to Coral Bay.

All the work is individually hand crafted Using the technique of "wheel Throwing" to achive the final form and surface texture.  Superior quality is guaranteed by the using highfired stoneware clay fired in a gas kiln.

This along with the so-called "unbalanced glazes"give the pieces a very distinctive surface texture.  No two pieces of pottery are ever the same.  All of the glazes are lead-free and developed in situ. Their matt finsh give the work earthly, natural hues.  Other glazes help to reproduce the turquoise and deep blue pieces, the color of the Mediterranean.  The idea has always been to keep things as far as simple as possible.

For George and Soteroula pottery is all about form and texture. Beauty comes form simplicity.  Lemba pottery also produces distinctive cups, mugs, kitchen jars, water jugs, storage jars, and dinner plates and other practical pieces as well as more decorative items like vases large bowls and "one-off" pieces.  All serving pieces are oven-proof, microwave and dishwasher safe and meet all European standards of hygiene.
