The Penelope Collection is the result of a wonderful collaboration between skillful potter Kypraiou SA and Thanassis Lalas, renowned journalist and talented artist that, over the last fifteen years, has devoted himself to painting and sculpture.
Each item – numbered to emphasize its uniqueness – is hand-stamped by Lalas with different verses from Costantine Cavafy’s famous poem “Ithaca.” The full set of eight plates, which can be perfectly accompanied by a matching set of serving spoon and fork, as well as each salad bowl feature the entire poem.
In the set’s complementary CD, famous actor and producer Sean Connery recites “Ithaca” with music especially composed by world-known Greek composer Vangelis Papathanassiou.
