The Colours collection celebrates individual colours which are drawn from the background pallete of island life in Crete. Cyan, purple, orange, blue, white, black are just some of the colours that brighten up the everyday and set the Mediterranean mood.
The Lykos Living artisans work individually or in a small team and on a made-to-order basis. This ensures that each product is ethical, distinct and exclusively for you!

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.
