Beautiful flowing-formed bowls and dishes in each size, objects with carve out faces, pattern and emerge grains are not only pleasure for the eyes but also for the sense of touch. Again Manolis asked me to touch the things and feel them. Among of them are really flattering pieces – olive wood with silky surface. Other objects seem to simulate very gentle lifelike skin. Engraved pattern where you don’t expect them and the weight of the wood surprised again and again. But even not enough – the polish of the surfaces are done with his self made wax, some of the objects get also a delicate scent. Other objet d’art also you can hear. A bust of an American Indian sounds like a xylophone when you stroke softly over his head and - placed outside, the wind will cause nice harmonies, explained Manolis. Unfortunately it was a totally calm day.
Really – it’s worth it to come past to Manolis work shop and to meet him personally. He offers objects and useful things for every one’s purse – starting from some euros up to some expensive objects. Anyway, they are all precious. Oh, wait a minute, did I already told you that Manolis now work with pips, seeds and stones? Frome olive stone up to cherry stone – each of them he pierces and cut something onto it. Huge baskets full of little stones – it’s really incredible what a power comes out of him. For sure, I will visit him each year ones to see his new art and get some gifts for my family.
