Design Ceramic Pots – About us
Pottery originated before the Neolithic period, with ceramic objects like the Venus of Dolni Vestonice figurine discovered dated back to 29,000–25,000 BC.
The word ceramic is coming from a place called Kerameikos, the potter’s quarter in the ancient Greece.
This form of art lies between sculpture and painting and has been part of culture all over the world since prehistoric times.
The main material used by potters is clay, which originates from silicium. Clay is classified in 3 main categories based on their contamination: fireproof clay, pottery clay and coarse clay. Our products are made using the purest fireproof clay to ensure the best quality and maximum durability.
We are working with ceramics for over 18 years in our small family manufactory in Hungary and combine this thousands of years old tradition with modern technology and our experience to create unique products with great care. All of our products are handmade and uniquely designed using the best ingredients.
Glazed pyrogranite ceramics go through a double firing process which gives their durability and exceptional resistance against extreme temperatures. The clay products are shaped manually then are left to dry for 10 days and then fired in the oven at 1150C. After that they are coated with the glazing and put back into the oven at 1050C. Thanks to this process the ceramics become fire, water and frost resistant.
Our goal was to combine the traditional pottery and ceramist industry so that all our everyday objects serve as decorations too.
