We undertake ethnographic fieldwork in more than thirty ceramic workshops spread all across Greece. Some of the workshops can be found on the mainland, in: Macedonia (Thessaloniki, Serres, Avramilia), Thessaly (Kastraki), Central Greece (Athens, Perama), and Peloponnesus (Kalambaka). Most of them, however, can be found in one of Greece's many islands. Crete, for one, is home to many of these workshops (Thrapsano, Margarites, Paidochori, Kokkini Hani). Others are located at the Ionian island of Zakynthos (Maherado, Marineika, Vasilikos). And of course a great number of them are based on one of the Aegean Islands. We have thus far visited workshops in: Sifnos (Livadas, Apollonia, Kamares, Cherronisos, Tsopos Vathi), Serifos (Kato Chora), Lesvos (Agiasos, Agios Stefanos, Mantamados), Chios (Armolia, Mesta), and Samos (Koumaradei, Manolates). And our plans also include visiting workshops in Kythera (Kato Livadi); Rhodes (Keramos, Archangelos), and Skopelos (Chora). The workshops have been chosen to provide insights into regional variability and the differences (or similarities) between both hand-building and wheel-thrown techniques. We are following the ways of the hand and observe the forming of clay trying to bring out unnoticed patterns of connectivity.
