Τhe potter on the mountain
A graphic designer, a potter, and president of the Cultural Association of Archilochos on Paros. I interrogated Stelios Ghikas on his three commitments one morning of May, when I went uphill from Kostos to his observatory, following a sign that read: Yria Ceramics. I found myself in front of a minimal and elegant complex: the Shop, a pottery show and sales room, the enclosed Herbarium and the pottery studio. My attention was drawn to the red slide entitled “Indecision” and crafted by Dimitra Chanioti, which I had only seen in photographs, as well as Ingbert Brunk’s marble sculptures.
