Artemonas, to the north of the island.
Originally from Sifnos, the Kalogirou come from a long line of ceramists. So long that they were able to leave and live the American dream in the 1960’s and return 30 years later. While on mainland Greece, the family had previously produced jars to supply Athens with drinking water. They always pushed their materials to their limits, experimenting, creating and developing.
Back to Sifnos in 1991, home was begging.
Costas Kalogirou and his son Antonis, an engineer trained in England, open a workshop specialised in sandstone. Their ambition: make high quality, durable and easily accessible objects.
Uses, cooking styles, size, shapes and colours, multiplicity is their motto. Sifnos Stoneware perfectly combines artisan tradition and modern influences on a local scale with global techniques. These basic and timeless objects rapidly became classics, snapped up by the Athenians.
Meanwhile, Nina both woman and mother, weaves on a craft. An immobile and ancestral work.
