  • We came in this workshop in search of memories made hands and especially authentic. We stumbled upon a father and son are extremely nice, after a visit and explanations of the manufacture of these sculptures, we did the lot of memories. A visit not to be missed!

  • The Foundry is located on top of a hill, together with other workshops, so the place is easy to find. Even though we came late in the day was Yannis very hospitable and showed us the workshop. He told about the casting process and about the originals, he used as models. Smile and a great deal of kindness!

  • He is a good craftsman and shop has reasonable priced goods. I bought some right away. He will make personal gifts if asked. Glad I made a little detour.
  • We had a great afternoon here with kids, Yannis is a patient and good teacher who made lots of time for us. Highly recommended and his art and prices are great too.
  • I visited this unique place with my family in August 2017. and found wonderful people, keen on their profession. My children (6 and 12 years old) were delighted to independently make souvenirs for themselves by ancient technology under the guidance of a great master and a man of a broad soul. Master Yannis and his assistant Gavrilis are very friendly and open-minded people who generously donate their knowledge. The tour will be very informative, especially for children of school age, reserve at least two hours. Guaranteed positive emotions, as well as the opportunity to purchase highly artistic handmade souvenirs in memory of Crete. Mr. Yannis, thank you and your team for your work.
  • We where on the search for ceramics and passed through this place. Beautiful and handcrafted bronze items. Very friendly and hospitable artists. We would recommend to visit this workplace and gallery for sure!
  • Absolutely Genious Artist! Cretan hospitality and reasonable prices!
