Historical Retrospection

The ceramic company of archaic handmade pottery was founded in the late 40s, from the painter Gerontara Evangelos.

Γεροντάρας ΕυάγγελοςGerontaras Evangelos, was born in 1922, worked for many years in the factory of Ceramic, painting ceramic utensiles. It didn't take long before he became in charge of the artistic sector of the factory, with speciality in the historical Greek monuments. His restless artistic nature allowed him to develop the art of mural and pottery where henceforth, in 1948 founds his own manufacturing facility. He selects a team of experienced craftsmen, specialised in hand made ceramic and archaic art where they begin, with the blossoming of tourism in our country, to gain territory in sales in the tourist regions..

Later, his son Vassilios Gerontaras, undertakes in 1976 the continuity of the manufacturing business, developing further the work of his father. He upgrades the product, maintaining the traditional style and extends the network of sales all over Greece as well as abroad. Henceforth the Gerontara handmade ceramic guarantees a dynamic development in the Greek and European tourist markets. The company today, occupies 15 experienced employees among which Gerontara’s daughter Evgenia.

Evgenia Gerontara ensures the third generation in the tradition of archaic handmade pottery. She studied economics and management and is currently active in the arts. She has participated in exhibitions (the worldfineart - New York - 2006) and has excelled in European competition (www.euartmuseum.eu) representing Greek painters. Also in 2010 she took part in the collectible art book of Benaki museum of modern art.
