The Attic Black Shop

1

Specialising in the production of ceramic artefacts, The Attic Black shop is the retail store for the THETIS Authentics workshop in Athens. They have managed to preserve an almost lost Athenian tradition of black glazing thanks to scientific research and testing, producing identical replicas. Their workmanship has become renowned throughout Greece.

The shop includes ancient toys and figurines, tableware and other glazed pottery inspired from Attic pottery of the 5th and 6th centuries as well as other prehistoric artefacts from Thessaly and the Cyclades.
