The Potter House Of Vasile Goncear

Calarasi, Moldova

The Potter House of Vasile Goncear is situated in  Hoginești village right in the heart of Moldovan Codrii. The village Hoginești was founded in 1600 and it is considered to be the center of ceramices for ages. The name of Vasile Goncear is well-known all over the Republic of Moldova. He gained the art for pottery from his father. Along 15 years he worked in Italy also as a potter, but he came back because the nostalgia of his motherland was stronger. Here you have the possibility to participate at pottery lessons and even to be involved in making some ceramics things. Vasile Goncear hopes that his children will keep this tradition of this dynasty and it will never disappear.
