The Craft

Each piece is hand-throw on a wheel. It takes one week from start to finish. The clay is a custom blend of various powders (native to the region) to create a raw matte exterior and neutral color palette.

The clay is mixed by foot and is then kneaded before throwing each piece by hand. The piece dries in the sun for a couple of days before its stamped, glazed inside and outside, and then fried in the kiln for a half a day.

Care

As with all unglazed ceramics, rinse or wash immediately at each use to avoid staining or discoloration. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
