Shipping time 7 dni
9.00EUR

A truly unique, handmade vessel in the shape of a spherical bottle with a single handle made of the so called biscuit ware; a type of unglazed pottery typical of rural ceramics and earthenware. The bottle is biscuit in colour (hence the name), unglazed. It comes from the workshop of an eminent Polish potter located in eastern Poland and was made by hand using traditional methods and ornaments that have been in use for centuries and are typical of the region. It was kiln fired, once more using fully traditional methods rather than modern electric kilns. The bottom of the amphor bears the potter's mark attesting to its authenticity. 

The spherical, narrow necked bottle, decorated with a delicate grass pattern, will make a beautiful decoration in any room, it works perfectly on its own as well as a set of three or five similar vessels.

The bottle was impregnated to make it fully impervious to water which eliminated the effect of sweating characteristic of unglazed pottery. Thanks to this it can easily be used as, for example, a vase. It should not, however, be used for storing or serving food.
