These are examples of a few styles of casserole. They can have domed lids, flat lids or tagine style lids. They are great for cooking grains, legumes and meats. Please place an order with your desired size and choice of finish. Every vessel is marked differently during the wood firing. You can request red-gold with fire-clouds or starry solid black. I can also add horse-hair, which leaves little black lightning striations. All pots are priced at $100/quart and $25 for domed or flat lids. Tagine lids are an additional $75. All my work is handmade using the coil and scrape technique. Most vessels will ship within six weeks.
Micaceous Clay Casserole
Each micaceous vessel is a unique handmade piece that will only improve with time if you treat them well. This clay is slightly porous and has memory for what it has held. Over time it will develop a beautiful patina and seasoning that adds depth to food and drink.
Please hand-wash only, with mild soap or simply warm water and a scrub brush.
Do not soak overnight or use as a place to store cooked food.
Simmering a bit of water in your pot can help loosen any burnt bits, if you have a mishap.
Always dry your mica vessels thoroughly. If you live in a damp climate, you may wish to dry them periodically on your oven’s lowest setting.
Use wooden or non-metal utensils on micaceous clay to avoid scratches.
