Vermont Stoneware Mortar and Pestle

Vermont Stoneware Mortar and Pestle

$ 80.00
Our raw stoneware mortar & pestles are complemented by a natural white glaze interior. Hand thrown on the wheel, the contrast of the unglazed stone exterior and high fired white glaze interior gives each mortar a rustic, and contemporary look, and enhances the truly one-of-a-kind quality of each piece. This mortar & pestle is part of our Vermont collection, and inspired by the farm to table aspects of home, with an urban and industrial flair.

All of our glazes are formulated and mixed from scratch in our studio and contain non-toxic, all natural, food and dishwasher safe materials.

Each mortar & pestle is fired twice. The final firing is a cone 10 high reduction atmosphere. Cone 10 firing differs from the electric kilns and low firing techniques often used.

The final firing takes 24 hrs to reach the high temperatures necessary, requires precision and monitoring to ensure the kiln is heated evenly, and two days to cool. The high reduction firing also ensures each piece to be highly durable.

We prefer this firing technique with all of our ceramics to ensure our pieces can endure wear and tear, daily use, and avoid chipping. We want you to use and enjoy your pottery daily. It's made to last you a lifetime!
