Replicas of historical ceramics – Celtic goblets and bowls, early medieval and Gothic ceramics, Viking and Slavic chalices, plates and pitchers. Most of our ceramic products are fired in an outdoor wood kiln, which is why this type of ware is called “black” or “smoked ceramics”. It is done by first filling up the kiln with as much wood as possible and then making the firing chamber airtight. The smoke, and the carbon contained within it - thanks to a reduction process - closes up the pores in the clay and leaves a black surface on the pieces. These vessels are glazed within and safe to use with food.
