Three lines studio.



Konstantina Pardali and Demosthenis Kokkalis, since 1989, create unique hand made pieces of contemporary ceramics.
They use a version of the ancient Greek technique "terra sigilata" for the decoration of these items and a firing technique similar to the Japanese Raku. This technique involves smoke, produced after dipping the red hot objects in shavings. The result is spots and traces on the surface of the clay.
Those amazing pieces of high quality craftsmanship are never out of fashion and they always look elegant and classy!!
You can find all their new work at Kivotos gallery.

Kivotos is at the Paphos old market (or Laiki gonia). Since 1996 a lot of things have changed.
Still the old market is a very busy spot of Paphos. Especially on Saturdays a lot of villagers are selling their produce at the open fruit market.

Tablecloths, beach wear, shoes, jewellery, souvenirs, icons, local products like honey,olive oil, turkish delights ect. Six days a week ( 9:00-14:00) you can enjoy a walk, do your shopping and have a coffee or lunch at tavernas with breathtaking views.
