Longpi pottery is an age old technique unique to just two villages in the North East of India. Made by mixing ground black stone with locally found clay, our Longpi pieces for both the home and garden are characterised by a deep black patina, with the burnished finish creating a natural protective seal.
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. Deep in shape with a stepped-back, narrower base. For planting indoor plants. The pottery is not completely watertight and we suggest placing a dish inside to line the pot. Being handmade, each will vary slightly in shape and size.
Hand wash. Clay and stone.
Made in India.
Approximately D 9cm x H 12cm.
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.
