Lembesis Bowl No. 3

16.00 40.00

A tiny bowl to hold sea salt or condiments and features a sweet, hand-painted pattern of small, kitchen items in a blue and cream-colored glaze. We have paired these bowls in two ways: first, with a small, olivewood spoon and sea salt picked by hand from Mani in the Peloponnese. And, second, with an olivewood pick for olives. Pick your pairing!

Sifnos is a small, hilly island in the Cyclades known for its churches (there are over 365 of them), its dry stone walls dividing the fields, and its traditional pottery dating back to antiquity. The Lembesis family includes 5 generations of potters and their studio is in a small village near the top of the island. Every February, the Lembesis family spends the whole month digging up enough clay to make pottery during the summer. The dug clay is carried by donkeys up the hill and dried in the sun. Nikos works alongside his father, Yiannis at the wheel producing the same ceramics that his father, and grandfather made. Katerina, Grigoris, Spyros, and Maria all paint designs on select ceramics.
