Grey pottery butter churn

Shipping time 7 dni
11.50EUR

A unique, handmade butter churn, made of the so called grey pottery characteristic of the eastern regions of Poland as well as of the neighbouring states of Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine. The butter churn comes from the workshop of a folk artist and was made using traditional methods, materials and ornaments. Its characteristic grey colour results from a traditional way of kiln firing in an oxygen depleted atmosphere with reed smoke staining the pottery grey. 

The bottom of the butter churn bears the potter's mark attesting to its authenticity. 

The dish was impregnated to make it fully impervious to water which eliminated the effect of sweating characteristic of unglazed pottery, which makes it usable for a wide range of decorative purposes.  It should not, however, be used for storing or serving food.
