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 and covered in rice bran; the reaction with the oxides carbonises the clay body, creating the black finish.
As they are hand-formed and coloured no two items are the same and variations in the size, colour and finish may occur. The natural oils from the rice bran or small patches of natural earthenware brown may show through - this often adds to the attractiveness of the product.
Kartimarket has had a long term partnership with the Lombok Pottery Centre for a number of years and we visit them to hand-pick products and collaborate to design & develop new ones. The products are imported directly to the UK.
