Established in 1977 by two visionary potters in the quaint village of Kostos, Yria Studio PAROS has evolved into a pivotal center for the creation of exquisite handcrafted pottery, seamlessly blending functionality with aesthetic allure. Nestled on the picturesque island of Paros, this studio has become synonymous with fine craftsmanship and has left an indelible mark on the local artistic scene.

Throughout its storied history, Yria Studio Paros has developed an impressive array of forms and shapes, each meticulously crafted to possess both utilitarian functionality and artistic elegance. Drawing inspiration from a rich tapestry of influences, the designs at Yria Ceramics pay homage to pre-classical, Byzantine, and folk models, resulting in a collection that transcends time and tradition.

The studio’s offerings extend beyond everyday dinnerware, encompassing a diverse range of large decorative platters, sconces, vases, and bowls, each showcasing a unique blend of sizes and shapes. These masterpieces are proudly displayed at both the workshop and Yria Interiors, a showroom situated in the main square of Lefkes Village.

In addition to its pottery creations, Yria Studio Paros Interiors serves as a hub for the production of home furnishings and handmade tiles integral to the island’s distinctive architecture. The space also functions as a dynamic platform for artists and craftsmen, both local and international, providing them with a canvas to express their creative talents.

Yria Ceramics and Yria Interiors, intertwined as creative siblings, have become synonymous with a commitment to preserving and evolving traditional craftsmanship on Paros. The studios not only produce functional and artful pieces but also serve as cultural ambassadors, bridging the past with the present and creating a space where creativity knows no bounds. In the heart of Kostos, these workshops stand as living testaments to the enduring beauty of handmade pottery and the boundless possibilities that arise when artistic traditions are nurtured and celebrated.
