Hand-Crafted Ceramics Since 1960
We produce handmade ceramic tiles and plates, indoor and outdoor wall art, and colorful design solutions.
The signature on our logo, the interlacing of the Greek letters “pi” and “beta”, is as unique as the man and the art it symbolizes. It is found on every piece designed by the hands of one of the world’s greatest contemporary ceramists, Panos Valsamakis (1900-1986).
Tradition – History – Contemporary
The ceramic tapestries of Valsamakis, although inspired mainly by Greek folklore, are so universally appealing that they have earned Valsamakis critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout the world.
His themes have varied, over the years, from the traditional or historic to the contemporary, while his style has been influenced by modern realists as well as expressionists.
