14. Greek (Rhodes) Tiles – ICARO Rodi from the Old City

Rhodes 20th - ICARO Old City (Guardia)

I.C.A.R.O. tiles theme found in 2005 at an old Italian building, used to be the port customs in the old city of Rhodes (Rodi). ICARO workshop opening took place in 1926 in order to test various pottery techniques but the official inauguration was few years later in July 24, 1929. Initial set up of ICARO production was the result of the efforts and passion of a small team of young Italians that were invited to come to Rhodes from the Royal school of ceramics in Faenza (today the National Institute of Ceramics) bringing their love for ceramics and the needed knowhow in colors and techniques.
