Mushroom Pot - Colorado and California Clay

Mushroom Pot - Colorado and California Clay


I used this pot while collecting medicinal mushooms  (Turkey tails) in Missouri but you could use it to store wild grains, dried berries and so on.  While in Colorado I used it to store Russian olives for a while.  It's medium sized, not a large pot.


Made with clay foraged near Boulder Colorado mixed with Mojave Desert Clay.  Glazed inside and partly glazed outside.  Not waterproof tested, I use it for storage of dried goods. Willow bark cordage collected from a fallen branch in the local mountains (Lyons). 


LOTS of texture created by stones present in the unprocessed clay - mostly quartz. The collected clay is reduced into powder using my stone grinder (Molcajete), water is added to reach the right consistency and make the clay workable.


Mixed techniques - Handbuild and wheel. 


Fired at 2100 F using my portable electric kiln. This pot was fired twice. 


Transparent and white glaze made with natural ingredients (Non-toxic)


Diameter: 4.5  inches - 12 cm

Height: 4 inches - 10 cm

Weight: 19 ounces - 532 g
