Wild Drinks Fermentation Container

Wild Drinks Fermentation Container


It’s kinda like a bottle. Originally, I started with a simple design but as I went along, I followed what the clay was telling me to do, and I ended up with this interesting form. Perfectly symmetric object don’t really exist in nature so I think it make sense. I like the flow this form has.  You can use it as a display piece, but you can also use it and ferment some boozy concoctions using wild herbs, berries, roots, honey and wild yeast.  The top is similar to a fermentation crock, you just need to add water and place the “cup” to seal the bottle and make it anaerobic.  You can ferment 1 liter or 1 quart of liquid.


The original inspiration for my pottery work was Neolithic pottery. I live on a goat farm (@angelescrestcreamery on instagram) and this week  a new neighbor (@neolithicsheep on instagram) moved in with actual neolithic sheep (Soay sheep from Scotland). They look very beautiful, wild and ancestral. He offered me some wool which I gladly integrated into the cordage.  Thank you Shep!

Mixed techniques - Wheel, hand build and stones tools.

Glaze made with local rocks and mojave desert chalk ground by hand using my molcajete (stone grinder). The powders are mixed with ashes (pine) and local water, mugwort beer vinegar and xantham gum to make it easier to apply with a brush.

Handle made with recycled black oak deadwood and old wires found in the desert. Cordage made with a mix of various material (yucca, hemp, milkweed) and wool from neolithic sheep.

Clay is a mix of mountain dirt (Valyermo) and commercial clay. Both the teapot and cups are food safe.

Fired at Cone 6 - 2200°F (1200°C) in my electric kiln.


Diameter: 5 Inches (12.5 cm)
Height (with cup on top): 10 inches (25 cm)
Weight: 3 pounds 6 ounces (1507 gr)
