Handmade on the pottery wheel from local Latvian red earthenware clay, polished, hand engraved in sgraffito technique and reduction wood-fired for 12 hours in a traditional pit kiln. This firing creates beautiful finish on the outside of the piece ranging from black to metallic black with an occasional flame pattern. Bees-waxed after firing to give extra shine and waterproof it. Hand-wash only please. Please note due to firing this kiln only 2 times per year making time can be up to 6 months.
