THE MAKING PROCESS OF BLACK POTTERY –
Weathered rock and Serpentinite rock are two main raw materials used in this pottery. How the process begins is with two of the rocks being powdered and mixed with water in ratio of 5:3 to form clay-like consistency.
The mixture is kneaded for one long day, and is flattened on a wooden board for the slab work. The highlight of the Pottery is that it is not made on potter’s wheel. Each and every item is molded by hands and tools. Dried and hard clay will be put to the kiln at high temperatures, in the next step. The pot is also usually finished by rubbing the surface with bees wax giving it a nice shine. Cane strips are then woven through incisions made by skilled basketry artists. They are very earthy, still so contemporary.
