Toasted Coffee Stoneware HAN-CHIGA pot
handcrafted in Sicily by Esther Suave
Each piece is individually handmade & a one of a kind creation. As a result, products will have subtle variations from one piece to the next.
The creative process
This series of pots is the product of a meticulous wheel throwing process, where each piece is crafted into a unique shape.
It then undergoes an initial firing for a prolonged period of time, using a technique called bisque-firing done at 1020 degrees Celsius.
After the first firing, each piece is decorated and left to dry. A second glaze-firing follows at a temperature ~1240 degrees Celsius.
The piece is then left for the stoneware to mature and the glaze to vitrify.
The result is an astounding deep orange stoneware pot covered with Atlantic glazing that brings memories of the ocean's calm vastness on a summer night.
The solid feel of the pot makes for a dazing experience. The glazed handle provides sturdiness and balance.
