If you love porcelain and Greek ceramic excellence, go meet Katharina and Alexander. Together they chose the theme of olives and fish, nobly sublimating Greek porcelain. We like to get lost in the blue and white of their creations. And they are heartfelt when they tell you about themselves and their work. When will there be an exhibition in France?If you love porcelain and Greek ceramic excellence, go meet Katharina and Alexander.

Hello, I went two days apart in the Fish store & in the Olive "gallery". Each time the staff seemed on edge, stressed, trying to avoid anyone touching, photography, the “Not To”. Hey, we are in Greece, the sun is there, a smile must be in order. No, you have to be serious because “we are in a gallery,” says the artist. For my part, I think that the expression "Concept Store" will be more appropriate, because it is a principle that is certainly elegant but repeated endlessly. When you are an artist, you do not fear copying, since you copy or you are inspired by what you have learned. The Cycladic icons do not hold a grudge against Pablo Picasso, quite the contrary! Jean Louis Galaktompoureko PS: the merchant's response clearly shows the state of mind that I wanted to denounce: "anything that is exaggerated is insignificant"

We visited Fish & Olives gallery and we were treated like friends and felt absolutely comfortable. The gallery and all artwork are a dream - wonderful! The artist couple are very nice people. We left with with some wonderful memories and new artwork for our home. Thanks a lot!

When visiting Chalki today we entered the Fish & Olive gallery. I had recently read about the work with the Jacques Cousteau underwater sculpture. We were immediately scolded by a very rude woman/gallery assistant who told us rather loudly "the door is closed as only five people are allowed in at a time". There were no signs outside stating this hence us walking in. We felt very embarrassed by her attitude & immediately left the gallery. We are frequent visitors to Naxos & have never experienced such rudeness, needless to say we will not visit this gallery again.

How lucky to have visited last May, the extraordinary Fish and Olive gallery - Magnificent pottery and ceramics as well as jewelry and wonderful linen shawls at the shop. Charming artists and thanks to Pépi for his enthusiasm in showing us around the gallery!

I read about this beautiful gallery on a blog and prioritized it during our stay in Naxos. Everything is beautiful, and museum-quality. Simply exquisite pieces ranging from unique olive tree sculptures in metal to prints to lamps. We bought an olive tree sculpture and had it shipped to our home in France. It was perfectly packed and reached us very quickly. The owner was very kind and responsive to questions. I can't recommend it enough!

Beautiful gallery, the lady who worked there was so nice, explaining the story of the gallery and all the pieces. A great stop for authentic Greek artwork.

We loved our experience looking at all the beautiful pieces at Fish and Olive. The stories about the artists were so interesting we ended up coming back just to buy a piece we couldn’t stop thinking about! It now sits displayed in our home and reminds us of that really fun day.

We stumbled upon this charming shop while exploring Halki on our Naxos holiday this summer. Fish & Olive is just one of those magical places where the most beautiful art and picturesque setting come together in perfect harmony! After admiring their creations, we had the chance to meet the delightful artists and see them at work. We selected a lovely vase adorned with blue fish and the gallery team did a great job of safely shipping it to Boston where it puts a smile on my face every morning when I see it! Absolutely worth a visit…

A nice gallery to take a look at if you happen to be in Chalkio. Nothing exceptional to get out of your way for otherwise. As evident by the name, the artwork is based on fish & olives.

Stepped into the elegant boutique of Fish and Olive looking for a special piece of art to remind us of our vacation in Naxos. We met both artists Katharina and Alexandre who hand made and painted the ceramic vase we purchased. Alexandre graciously gave us a tour of their studios and spoke about the history of the town and the design of their gallery. It was an amazing shopping experience we will never forget.

Stepping in to their gallery, you can feel the attention to detail and pride in craftsmanship. The building, the pottery, the art, the jewelry…everything was beautifully executed. Their enormous talent as designers was recognized by better eyes than mine and as such had been selected to create Jacques Cousteau’s memorial plaque on display in the waters of Santorini.We had the pleasure of catching Alexander and Katharina in the space that day and I could have basked in their presence all afternoon. They took the time to share some of their world with us and we soaked it in.If you’re on Naxos, do yourself a favor and go by their shop. Surround yourself in beauty for a moment.

Beautiful space! Amazing gallery! Really surprised to find this unique gem in a village, in the middle of Naxos! The unique work of Katharina and Alexander is a cure for the soul, influenced by the ancient Cycladic Art . Outstanding craftmanship that you can discover in a variety of different art mediums made by the two multi-talented artists. Friendly staff that makes you feel welcome in this beautiful space.

A gallery that can compete with the best ones in europe! Amazing and unique works of art!

Amazing to see how Fish & Olive and the gallery have evolved over the last two decades. The village of Chalkio used to be very run down, Fish & Olive most definitely played a huge role in its revival. Don't miss out on this gem in the heart of Naxos if you're looking for beautiful ceramics, marble sculptures or jewelry. Their shop, also located in Chalkio, is also worth a visit.

A beautiful gallery. I was captured by their creative logo. I went inside and they have amazing art pieces, my favorite is the hanging marble fish.
