Black pottery

 Oh, such a lazy day. The first day of the new year.
I only have energy to share these photos of clay pots, given away  to my friends for Christmas.
 I think I was a bit tired when these pots were created, cause I have done much neater clay things in my life. Though I like their rustic appearance. I hope the people who got them also can appreciate that :-)
Black pottery is a very interesting way of making durable dishes without using any glaze. 
The clay is baked in very high temperatures. The vessel becomes waterproof while the outer layer is being burned very compact.

How i't burned...

Look at this website. The pottery is gorgeous!
