Making Pottery

The Magic Potters.

Every master craftsman knows he is moulded by his material. George Georgiades is a master potter, moulded by the clay he handles with such warmth and creative talent. His love of the base material is clear from the minute you step inside his shop and workshop in the small village of Lemba on the outskirts of Paphos.

Production line pottery isn’t this mans ’bag’ he always dreamt of creating a new line in pottery, one that combined both aesthetic and functional appeal, so he began experimenting with various glazes and key to this was the importation of high quality clay from the UK.

George and wife Soteroulla have now established themselves as master potters creating true works of functional art and the range of work on display exudes a true sense of harmony, one that matches this rather unique couple’s innate sense of balance and style. The pieces currently on show would grace any fine town house in Knightsbridge, or New York, and it’s here discerning collectors can gaze upon the exhibits they can also order a bespoke service as George accepts commissions to create ‘one off’ unique pieces for both the garden and home. These have then been shipped around the world to end up in some well appointed garden or apartment many thousands of miles distant from their place of creation in the somewhat sleepy village of Lemba.

Senses are notoriously difficult to describe, and one can no more give a verbal tour of George’s glazed pots and crockery than I could explain the true taste and feel of an avocado. One has to see a piece of art, feel it and if it strikes a chord, then you must buy it, and at Lemba Pottery the cost of a piece of handmade pottery is comparatively inexpensive. Exhibited for sale are beautiful glazed pots, edgy designed platters, and minimalist bowls and plates, there is of course the wonderful range of bright Mediterranean blue pieces. These are Lemba Pottery’s signature pieces for the gift market, perfect for those who wish to return home carrying with them a tangible memory of their time spent lying on a Cyprus beach watching the quite dazzling azure hues of the sea.

So- ‘when is a plate, pot, or platter a work of art? When it’s created out of love and a good deal of passion by George and Soteroulla Georgiades.
