Cretan clays, several high temperature clays, such as stoneware and porcelain, and clay slips coloured with metal oxides and stains, are the basic materials Manolis uses to give shape to his ideas and emotions, final decoration is achieved using glazes, clay slips, stains, and bronze. The pieces are then fired at temperatures of 1065 - 1280 C for up to 24 hours to give permanent non-fading colours.
Works by Manolis are part of the Hellenic Handcrafted Creations collection(see logo above) and are made only on Crete by Manolis with the assistance of his wife.
Each piece is supplied with a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ and a card with information about Manolis.Many of the pieces bear a ‘signature’ while others have the ‘Virus Ceramicus’ logo stamped into them.
As with all of our ceramics, bronzes, sculpture and jewellery, we have used high resolution pictures as we want you to have the best experience of our products while visiting our web site and on line shop, so when you click on the thumbnails below the full size picture is often quite a large file. If you think that you would like an even better picture then ask us and we will email it to you!
Because each of these is handmade the dimension given may vary slightly and for the same reason the colours may vary from batch to batch. For items like the ‘Crush series the colours and positions of the heads vary from piece to piece.
