  • An outstanding metal artifacts work. Very professional. Mr Kelesis delivers in time and his artifacts combine a unique talent and thousands of years of Cretan art development. Well done Yanis.  more »
  • Yannis welcomed us warmly with drinks and rolls filled with spinach and a visit to his Studio. There is something for every taste: Classic and modern. We passed a command for a particular object, he worked on a simple drawing and we got it the next day, we were thrilled! Polite Evkaristo Yannis! Jasu!

  • We discovered the Yannis shop by chance, as we walk... Yannis and Michel welcomed us warmly (Raki, cakes and good mood) we had the chance to attend a demonstration, Yassin is a passionate and exciting artist! We learned a lot, laughed a lot! It is certainly our most beautiful meeting of Crete... Don't leave without going there!
