Here is the story of AMPHORA
Our story started with the solid resisting to fire. Fury of the fire virtually submitted to the serenity and peace of the soil and they became one heart. While mentioning about bowls, pots and amphoras, the love lasting for years witnessed the history. SEREL Amphora Series brought us the naturality and friendship of the past. This series will sometimes tell the story of food piled in amphoras in ships, sometimes what settled life has given to the mankind; it will be a different story, a different life every time, and will excite his user differently.... SEREL team has collated the traces of the past with his experience of sanitary ceramic, respected the environment and has not ignored the next generations.
