Keramikmarkt, Diessen am Ammersee. Boats come and go, people, seasons…
The pithoi too, all the way from Crete, every year. Only this time, the tireless Nikos Kavgalakis didn’t turn up to build his pots right on the promenade. He had to keep the appointment with his own maker. Rest in peace, Nikos.
Luckily, Nikos’ grandson, Giorgos, is continuing the tradition.
Here is a video of the Diessener Keramikmarkt I came across on YouTube (by Joachim Stracke) from 2013. It includes a few shots of Nikos building his pitharia.
