This water jug is part of the pieces traditionally made by Sezinando Fernandes Ramalho, one of the last 5 potters to use the ancestral technique of making black pottery in Bisalhães, a technique registered as a UNESCO World Intangible Heritage Site. This water jug has been used in Portugal for over 500 years.

The originality of this pottery lies in its colour, which can vary from charcoal black to dark grey depending on the specimens. This colouring is obtained during the firing process as the oven opening is blocked by herbs and wet soil.
Why I love it
  • Typically Portuguese, this water jug remains functional and can be used to serve olive oil or wine but it is also a very original decorative object.
  • The manufacturing process gives this piece a high resistance and allows it to be used in an oven or placed in the freezer.
  • More than an object, this small pot is a part of the Portuguese heritage, now considered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

                                                                                                       

Please note: This piece is entirely handcrafted. The firing process of the clay used can give it a colour that varies from deep black to silvery grey. The imperfections on its surface are an integral part of the object and are also due to the firing process used.
If you would like to know more about this manufacturing process, please read our blog on the black pottery of Bisalhães.
