A Talented Cypriot - my nephew

Simon, my nephew, makes pots for a living, what a talented chap. I've challenged him to make a large Greek amphora. :D

Amazing stuff. I really love them. I bet they would function really nice as pots for cacti and succulent.

Time we stopped relying so much on importing Italian pottery.

Yeah, I just realised it when I looked closer to one of the pictures and the surroundings didn't look Cypriot at all. :p

Cyprus is still dominated by Italian ceramics and pottery when we could have just produced them ourselves.
