Description

Hand-etched designs decorate this rich red-brown casserole dish. Hand-formed by women potters of Lombok, Indonesia, this piece is low fired over a wood fire and packed in straw. Before firing, the pots are burnished with a mixture of fine clay, water and oil, then rubbed with a smooth stone or hard object.

    Curious about clay-pot cooking, I requested one for a Christmas gift. I was delighted to find that many Fair Trade retailers source clay pots, and I enjoy learning about the women who produced the one I now own. This one is perfect for cooking hearty and unusually delicious stews and soups, and it's so beautiful that I display it when it's not needed in the kitchen! Also, the packaging was superbly done -- no worries whatsoever about damage in transit.
