It's been awhile since I've shown you any clay pots. Don't think it's because I've learned self control. I just forgot!
My current favorite pot is from Chile. It didn't need curing and it reacted quickly to the heat and still managed to stay warm long after the fire went out. I think it's a keeper, although it's a little small. We're looking into getting larger sizes to actually sell in the the store, should it ever open.
Not being able to leave well enough alone, I decided the pot was too sterile and clean so I took my handy butane torch to it and add some lovely black marks to it. Please don't laugh at me. I am vulnerable these days. I think it looks much better and well-loved. We'd have gotten there eventually.
