PERMANENT EXHIBITION

The permanent exhibition of the Museum is made up of traditional workshops.

It consists of a room/space dedicated to an introduction of traditional ceramics, a workshop on the construction of vessels without the use of any wheel,
and one which does use manual wheel (“trochi”), as well as a workshop where the kick wheel is used.

In these places/spaces a comprehensive picture of Greek traditional pottery is presented, starting from the early 19th to mid-20th century.

With visual material (texts, photos, video, maps), as well as re-enactment/ representations of the three types of workshops that existed/operated in Greece during the recent years, together with other displays (objects, documents, manuscripts, etc.), the visitor has the opportunity to gather a variety of information on technology and the role of traditional pottery art, the stages and techniques, the typology and the use of vessels in everyday life and the customs associated with them.

The main objective of the permanent exhibition is to inform the visitor, through selected visual material, in a direct and comprehensible way, so he can receive a vivid picture of the many expressions of ceramic art in Greece.
