Unique products from local artisans and businesses

Glass blowing art

October 26 2021

In a time where everything goes so fast, it's refreshing to find products made slow. The mouth blown glass collection from Nikos Haritakis is a treasure.

Nikos is making his craft since 1987. He uses glass from empty bottles, old windows and basically all glass that's been thrown away. So the collection is completely recycled.

He's inspired by the colours of Crete, the green of the olive trees, the brown shades of the dry fields after long hot Summers and many shades of blue from the sky and the sea.

Nikos says "In nature there are no straight forms." That's why he loves smooth rounded shapes that are pleasant to the eyes and hands. 

Most of all his love for nature, the simple things in life and his home land Crete is what he shows in his art.

What is also great about his collection is that everything is usable and practical. Glasses, vases and jugs. It makes everyday moments special.
