I bought my pair of Kamini vases in Germany... One question is still open, if it is from Greece, why don't they use greek letters?

Because it's for exporting , that's why german pots have "MADE IN "on them also

The reason for Made in Germany is the follow: The label was originally introduced in Britain by the Merchandise Marks Act 1887, to mark foreign produce more obviously, as British society considered foreign produce to be inferior to domestic produce, and tried to get buyers to adhere to the concept of 'buying British'. (Quoted from Wikipedia)

... and if they use latin letters for the export, it would only make sense if they add where it came from. On the other hand, if they would use Greek letters everyone would know that it is made in Greece.

I bought today in a Bologna market a vase with stamped mark "KAMINI GREECE"
summarizing the controversial:
Kamini means kiln in Greek
is a village in Hydra island
often sellers on the web say Scandinavian or Finland pottery
Someone says a German or a Finnish guy works in Greece ( like Germans settlement in Vietri or Italian ICARO in Rodi)

Greece modern pottery doesn't replay the glorious age of ancient era
Maybe should be explored
Famous Greek descents:
Joanna Constantinidis Peter Voulkos
local factory studios maybe produce ancient or traditional types for tourists
here a nice report from Mesagros a village in Aegina Island

Interesting stuff as to Homer I have a theory that most stories date back to when we lived in caves before agricuture a lot of time (thousands of years) when we had the same intellectual powers as today and a lot of spare time sitting round the campfire, cinderella in its earliest known form is apparently chinese, love that 'to translate china' idea I was working on a similar idea with Japanese items
