YRIA CERAMICS was founded in 1977 by two young potters. Stelios Ghikas, a Paros native, had just finished his studies and graduated from the Faenza Institute of Industrial Design in Italy and Monique Mailloux . Producing wonderful ceramics and sculpture that are so skilfully put together. So began the tradition of STUDIO YRIA. The studio is set in the mountains near Lefkas and is both a home and studio. A visit is a true inspiration with such choice pieces that are incredible . I will feature some of the individual items later.
