AT THE EDGE OF THE CAPE

Dimitris Κouvdis has past his life in Agios Stefanos, nowdays an abandoned settlement of the potters, in the north part of Lesvos island. Memories, the charming art of the humble clay, the kiln (kamini) where the past meets the present – all are depicted through the eyes and the daily life of the last remaining traditional potter and his wife in a documentary created by the Architects Association of Lesvos, . “At The Edge Of The Cape” as a place and boundary balances between the destruction and the creation, operating as a spot and border for the potter to see the past and the future of a world that changes.
