This water-seal crock is durable and ideal for fermenting. It provides functional efficiency and adding sculptural beauty while eliminating the pungent fermenting smell. A ceramic vessel is the best way to make Sauerkraut, kimchi and fermenting all kinds of vegetables such as cucumbers, beets, cauliflower, and carrots. Whether you’re just getting started with fermenting or looking to upgrade your setup, our non-toxic handmade vessels are guaranteed to do the job!

Three beautiful glazes are available in the one-gallon fermenting crock:

Desert- The monumental beauty of the deserts echos in your hands when you touch this vessel, transcending the landscape onto your kitchen counter. The Desert glaze design is a combination of two glazes; inside is a brown-black glaze that is very functional with its smooth, shiny surface as it is easy to clean. Outside is a matte yellow-ochre color,  a wood ash glaze with rusty brown spots, its texture practical for handling in a wet environment.

Aspen- it reminds me of an Aspen Tree bark with its brown and pink hues or the orange flashes on the bare clay. It is a white-light gray thick glaze, which its unique translucency is enhanced by the blue-gray brushstrokes shown from underneath. Each piece and vessel are slightly different with their brushstroke variants, movement and tones.

Forest- The forest glaze is an ash glaze sourced from the Pacific Northwest forests’ tree ash. The colors range from a canopy of cold and warm greens in dark and light tones, with occasional orange and brown flashes. Its surface is mottled, having the identifying ash glaze appearance of vertical creaks-like lines. The crock is glazed inside with jade color smooth and shiny glaze, while the ash glaze outside is matt.

The one-gallon can produce saurekraut from about 4-5 cabbages. All of my handmade ceramics are one of a kind, with intricate details that make each piece a unique work of art. Each vessel connects us with nature’s substances; soil, minerals, and trees while carrying through long generations and traditions of knowledge and creativity.

  1. jtravism

    Crock arrived safely. The yellow exterior glaze is awesome – I couldn’t see the crackling in the photo but it adds so much character and charm – I love it as art alone. I have already started a batch of kraut in the thing – my first ever – and am overall very very pleased! Thanks for your expert packing and sturdy box!

  2. Ross

    Accurate in color and beautifully made. Shipped in plenty of bubble wrap to keep it safe during the package heavy holidays.

  3. Laura

    I purchased the crock for my husband as a Christmas gift and am happy to say that he LOVES it! So far he has made giardiniera and it was super tasty – many more ferments on the horizon.

  4. Leigh

    This was my husband’s favorite Christmas present this year! He is already on his second fermentation project.

  5. Tanner

    We love it! Its beautiful and I swear the kraut we make with it tastes better than ever before!

  6. Lara

    Absolutely beautiful piece! I got it as a gift for my brother and his wife and they were blown away. Lovely and super functional.

  7. NinaBT

    I love beautiful practical items and this is certainly just that! Perfect size for a small household too. Also, of note it was packed very well and arrived in great shape.

  8. Stephanie

    This is my second crock from Hadar and I love them both. I originally bought a 1 gallon crock and used it so frequently I decided it was time for a second (1.5 gallon this time).

    I had the opportunity to pick up my crock and see Hadar’s studio which was awesome and inspiring. Her work is all beautifully made and functional. I can’t find anything else like it. Thanks, Hadar! I may be back for a 2 gallon. 😄

  9. Adam

    The crock is gorgeous. Shipping was free and everything arrived in perfect shape!

  10. Oriana

    We had a couple issues with our first order but Hadar did everything to make it right. She was quick to respond via email and sent us a replacement vessel for free. Excellent customer service. The crock is equally as impressive. I was able to fit 4 large heads of cabbage in the vessel and now we have a wonderful, functional piece of art making sauerkraut on our counter! Thanks Hadar!!

  11. motiondoctor

    We received the pot and jar in perfect condition. Robin was totally thrilled. Totally. She loves the glaze and says it’s exactly what she would have picked for herself.

    Gotta tell you, however nice I thought they looked in the photos, they’re far nicer in real life-totally functional and totally beautiful! You make beautiful things.

    Our first fermentation was carrots, cauliflower, green beans, red onions and daikon. Delish! Robin’s a natural at natural fermentation.

    Thanks again,
    Larry

    These crocks are gorgeous and so well made. Thank You so much – and thank you that they were shipped so well and without styrofoam peanuts!!

  13. aoire

    I reviewed this with the first crock i ordered. Thank You so much for the beautiful well made and artfully designed crocks!

  14. agirlinagarden

    Absolutely exquisite craft and artistry in this crock! And incredibly customer service from Hadar. The UPS gave both of us quite the run-around when it came to delivering this crock because of a mistake on UPS’s part that they refused to acknowledge and Hadar communicated with me every step of the way and got the crock to me safely in record time! I’m so grateful to have such a beautiful piece to use! Thank you so much for going above and beyond <3

  15. Brooke

    It’s beautiful.

  16. Amarit

    This beautiful crock looks great on my counter and I used it to make some of my best sauerkraut ever. Fast shipping and it arrived well packaged. I highly recommend!

  17. Adrian

    I am absolutely thrilled with the Fermentation Crock and Sake set that I purchased from InFerment. Both pieces arrived quickly and well protected. They are both beautiful additions to my kitchen and my first batch of sauerkraut is already under way in my fermenting crock! I may have to order another one soon.

  18. Christopher

    Arrived in a few days and I got a batch of sauerkraut started, should be ready any day now! Also very attractive on the countertop.

  19. jtravism

    This is absolutely stunning! This is the second crock I have ordered from InFerment and it’s just such a functional gorgeous piece that I am rethinking my plans to gift this one away at Christmas. I am so completely pleased once again here – these gorgeous vessels are worth every last penny, and the seller is such a pleasure to work with! 100/10!

  20. disastrosaurus

    I can’t even express how excited I am about this crock! It’s even more beautiful in person, and all the idiosyncrasies of the glaze give it a wonderful earthy character. Also, thank you so much for the matching cup! It’s my new favorite for tea. Thank you!!

  21. Pearl

    Beautifully made and sturdy. Came with weights and a cute little bowl. Excellent craftsmanship and I would order from this shop again.
