Description

In the summer of 2021, my wife, Lynnette, and I visited the Greek island of Chios, and stumbled upon the incredible medieval town of Pyrgi. Built between the 10th and 11th centuries, Pyrgi is unique for its graffiti. Every building in Pyrgi from the ancient church to the grocery store is covered in graphic sgraffito, or white wash scratched through to the black color beneath. When we entered Pyrgi, I felt like I had died and gone to heaven, being surrounded by so much eye candy everywhere I looked. There were very few circular designs in Pyrgi—most of them following horizontal stripes, but being a potter who works largely in the round, I decided a bowl needed to be made to celebrate some of their designs. This bowl is 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 2” deep.
