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 half- a-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.
Seashell- A unique glaze is sourced from the tree ash of the Pacific Northwest forests. The colors range from a canopy of white to gray hues, with occasional flashes of blue or green streaks. It may range from a shiny finish to a matte look, to a stone-like appearance depending upon where it is placed in the kiln, and sometimes they are all at once on the same vessel, which is the beauty of high fire ceramics.
The half a gallon can produce saurekraut from about 2 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.
