Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Pottery Art Workshop in Pafos. Artistic and traditional pottery and ceramic work. "Clay forming was for me a revelation and little did I know that it would form my life. For the past 30 years and hopefully for another 30 more, I will carry on crafting which is for me the ultimate seduction. Self taught, influenced by images, forms, and shapes from handcrafts lying around in the open, in museums and in books, I run my own workshop for 20 years. The workshop is situated on the old Paphos - Limassol road. Anyone can walk around the workshop and watch the whole process of pot making, either on the wheel, mould or hand built. I will gladly explain any queries you may have. If you get the urge to unleash your creative side, then pot throwing is just the thing for you and could be a day to remember as the feel of the wet clay would bring out your hidden sensuality. Clay is treated by carving, slip trailing under or over glazing. Many items are made in series and the intention is to keep them in stock. But we also produce one of a kind pots. Pay a visit to the workshop and I will show you around. Whether you want to come and play with the clay or join us for a coffee you are welcome any time. Thank you for visiting the page and hope to see you soon in Paphos.

“Best pottery making day out for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

This was a great find. It is easy to get to from Paphos. We compared three pottery places in the area, Avgoustinos Pottery was the best value for money, no quibble and no extra charges for small things the other places considered extra.
Nino is an excellent potter. He was patient with the children. If they spoilt their clay he just put another lump on and got on with it.
Good for a chat and a drink.
Reasonably priced items for sale in the shop reflected by the number of people we saw whilst we were there.

“perfect for a last stop before take-off”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Be sure to visit,especially if you want to take home a piece of art from a local artist.

Prices are reasonable and the owner-artist is very friendly and not at all pushy.you can also find handmade soaps and essential oils sold there,and it's on the way to the airport so it's perfect if you're looking for a last minute gift.

“Gone to POT in Yeriskipou”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Lovely friendly place run by a real potter whose charm and talent makes this a must 'go to' destination. Its a huge place filled with samples of the owners works as well as other pottery goods. The owner is called Ninos and is easily identified by his wild grey hair and always ready smile and the offer of a refreshment. No pressure is put on those who just wish to browse but there are so many gift items as well as glorious pieces to take home to grace your dining table, kitchen, or display area. Its so good for the soul to come in here and watch a man who is passionate about his craft when all around are rubbish Chinese mass made imports taking centre stage.
