This vibrant culture was centred around the island of Crete and eventually dominated the Aegean region. The Egyptians called the Minoans “the Sea Peoples” and had a fond appreciation for Minoan pottery and ceramics, prized for their innovative shapes and sea-inspired designs. Their vases and jugs were made in fine clay with thin walls and was an outstanding achievement at this time. Historians have learned everything there is to know about the Minoan people through their artwork. Artwork such as paintings, pottery, sculptures, and architectural designs were important to the people of the Minoan civilization in Crete.Our clay items are Hand painted and not fastly made, nor are they cheaply made of substitute materials such as resin.
