Longpi pottery is made using an age-old technique unique to just two villages in north-east India. Made by mixing ground black stone with locally found clay, longpi pieces are handbuilt, left in the sun to dry out and then woodfired. The burnished finish creates a natural protective seal, whilst characterising longpi with its deep black patina. Rounded shape with a stepped-back, narrower base, with two small handles. Being handmade, each will vary slightly in shape and size.
Hand wash. Clay and stone.
Made in India.
Approx D 18.5cm x H 15.5cm.
Each ceramic piece has been thrown or pressed and glazed by hand. Due to the handmade nature, there may be pleasing variations and irregularities in colour, size and shape.
