5cm top diameter x 11.5cm deep
This little pot is made from locally dug clay, wheel thrown, coated with terrasigillata and pit fired to create these unique markings. There is an ancient feel to the pot and a slightly wayward shape. The clay is a terracotta colour giving the pitfired a more earthy depth and tone.
All markings and colours are created by the flames, smoke and natural additions wrapped around the pot during firing. All pit or barrel fired pots are unique and will never be replicated. The colours and marks are dictated by a complex combination of variables unique to the particular firing. For a full description of the pit/barrel firing process, please go to the pitfiring page of the website.
Ornamental use only. The pot is not waterproof and is not suitable for food. The colours are permanent, but the surface can be rewaxed using a liquid wax polish from time to time using a soft cloth. Not suitable for a dishwasher
