Modern VS traditional or rustic ceramics

Posted on December 28 2017

Pottery is an old art coming from the dawn of times, as archeologists prove. It is amazing how this dinnerware has survived through epochs. Connoisseurs state that the food cooked in it is the most delicious. Clay pots keep it hot for long and reveal its full taste. Besides that, such items are ecological and beneficial for health.

Nowadays, the centuries-old experience mingles with modern approaches and innovative techniques which improve the way the pottery looks but still do not decrease its eco properties. Perhaps, this is the secret while it is still a decent rival of trendy glass or metal tableware.

Modern Vs Traditional Or Rustic Ceramics

Traditional pottery: ancient skills of present day masters

Basically, pot-making follows old traditions which artisans inherit from generation to generation. They create rustic pots and mugs at the potter’s wheel as it was done many centuries ago. Ukrainian pottery techniques involve milk firing which not only gives pleasant flavour to drinks but the special dark colour to traditional ceramic products and makes them leakproof.

Such items are quite sturdy as they undergo the process of double firing. Fist, cups and bowls or pots are put in kilns with the heat around 1000 C. Second time, when milk is added, they are subjected to less intensive temperatures (not more that 350 C).

These products meet all consumers’ requirements in terms of:

  • Eco-properties
  • Aesthetics
  • Durability
  • Smell
  • Taste of food and drinks

Contemporary ceramics: a new approach to old crafts

We got used to the brown colour of clay pots but there is the latest word in this art which says ‘no’ to plain tones. As of now, it can be as bright as the rainbow but not harmful at all. The secret lies in the innovative techniques of modern coating with glaze which is manufactured especially for dishes and is not absorbed by food. What is more, these items are produced from German clay known for its outstanding quality.

The kaleidoscopic palette of modern plates amazes: it is available in red, azure, aquamarine, violet cheering us up and adding contrasting accents to our everyday routine. Our ceramics can be of pastel tones and unique designs and patterns – like feathers, angel wings, with fanciful flowers and what not!

Some of items seem to be so light – like the feather platters! Yet, they are intricate at the same time in its hand carving and modeling.

The high temperature of double firing in contemporary kilns up to 1050 C makes such ceramics especially durable.
