The Office of Ionian Village has released a “Limited Edition Meet me at the Chapel” Christmas Ornament to raise funds to repair areas of the camp site damaged by a mid-October tornado. All proceeds from this ornament fundraiser will be donated to the Ionian Village Tornado Fund.
Ionian Village has partnered with So Blue Greek Ceramics & Gifts to commission this ornament. This small business is owned and operated by Elizabeth Chiarel who reached out to Ionian Village as a response to the life-transforming experience her children all had at the camp. The solid beechwood ornaments were all individually hand-painted in Greece by Katerina Kourteli.
Kourteli has a Masters in Fine Arts from Coventry University in the UK and is a resident of Athens, Greece. Kourteli also attended a three-year iconography course under iconographer George Kordis and the school “Iconourghia.”
The Office of Ionian Village hopes to offer this beautiful hand-painted ornament that will bring the love and warmth of the beloved Chapel into homes this Christmas Season, and for generations to come. Click the link below to order, limited quantities remain!
