Good to know Fits standard tea light candle. Candles not included

Lombok earthenware pottery has evolved over the centuries and generations, with skills passed down from mother to daughter. The pottery has always served a practical as well as ceremonial use, hence their beautiful presentation.

Lombok Pottery products are hand-formed from red earthenware clay. They are burnished with a hard object to smoothen and polish. Following the firing process the pottery is skilfully pulled out while still hot using iron tongs.

The tamarind colour is created by spraying the hot pottery with natural tamarind extract which fuses with the clay to create the reddish, speckled finish.

As they are hand-formed and coloured no two items are the same and variations in the size, colour and finish may occur.

Kartimarket has had a long term partnership with the Lombok Pottery Centre for a number of years - we visit them to hand-pick products and collaborate in the design of new ones. The products are imported directly to the UK.
