Handthrown Crock, Small
Handcrafted from white European clay, the Handthrown Pottery Collection is created by European artisans on an original potter’s wheel. The pieces are inspired from classic European kitchens, mixing traditional designs with contemporary style. While each item is different and will vary due to the handcrafted technique used to create them, each piece boasts a unique lush glaze to enhance authenticity. The utensil crocks were inspired by an Italian staple, the olive jar. The ceramic pots come in three sizes, small, medium and large, each exerting the same effortless beauty as the next. With a clay seal on each side and dainty handles, the jar is an ideal utensil holder in your kitchen.
Each piece of pottery is handcrafted in a small atelier in Europe from white European Clay. From beginning to end, each piece requires approximately 35 hours of work. During the process, our handthrown pottery and bakeware are fired twice in a precision-controlled electric oven. Crazing will typically occur during the first fire. This is a desired effect to enhance the individuality of each piece. Crazing does not affect the quality or durability of the item.
Please note, this is all part of the desired effect we strive so hard to curate and create. This collection was thrown entirely by our master potter, a very well-known and coveted ceramist in Hungary. Each piece is thrown one at a time on the potter’s wheel, making them uniquely special. Any drips, bubbles, ridges, or other imperfections, including spots in the glaze, are all part of the authentic design process. These imperfections are part of our hand-crafted “perfectly imperfect” status that Europeans are quite proud of.
