Evil Eye Collection
Honouring the practice of ancient ceramic art, the artisan creates handmade design objects that blend her own background story and the culture clashes that she encountered in her contemporary Greek life. The whole results in a continuous dialogue, characterized by bold elements and aesthetic consistency.
The evil eye is deeply ingrained in Greek culture. From city offices to village kitchens to baby strollers, the evil eye motif absorbs harm and provides protection.
Since our ceramics are handmade, it is impossible for for each item to be identical; that's the wonderful nature of handcrafted work. Actual colours may differ on your device due to screen variation (different screens reproduce colours in different ways). Each piece is unique, handcrafted and hand painted which will result in differences from piece to piece. Variations in size or shape of the items are also a result of their being hand thrown on a wheel and later hand painted.
We recommend hand washing as you would fine china. With time and repeated use, clay has the tendency to "craze" (form miniscule lines in the glazing). Crazing is in the nature of clay - it is inevitable yet has no significant effect on ceramics and is only cosmetic. If you want to slow down the process, handle your pieces carefully and temper them when serving very hot foods. Keep in mind if you used crazed objects with dyes or food with strong colours like beets, staining in the crazed portions may occur. This does not compromise the safety of the item.
