Large salad + fruit bowl, handmade using sourdough technique. Sourdough pottery (also known as leaven pottery) is a clay pottery making technique which emerged in medieval Northern Europe where people used to bake bread and fire pottery in the same kiln and used sourdough leftovers to decorate the pots. Sourdough is prepared by mixing the whole grain rye flour and water. This mixture should be prepared at least five days before the firing proccess this allows the mixture to ferment which is crucial to achieve the patternation. The pottery is heated in a wood-fired kiln and dipped into sourdough mixture before cooling. This specific process results in unique patterns, texture and colors, different every time. The technique is organic and eco-friendly. This exclusive pottery is also suitable for cooking, baking on ember at the cottage, or in an electric oven at home.
