Are you looking for an affordable handcrafted fermenting crock? Our Rustic line of fermentation crocks are all handmade in a small ceramic studio in Poland. The glaze on these crocks is not as smooth or refined but they still ferment just the same! The style of these crocks remind us of rustic, medieval pottery - that old-world style that we love. The glaze color on the Rustic crocks is a medium muddy brown. The Rustic Line of crocks are the heaviest crocks we offer - with thick walls to help prevent temperature fluctuations.
As with all of our crocks, the Rustic crocks have a lead free glaze. These crocks also feature an water seal airlock which allows the gases created during fermenting to escape, but prevent mold or bacteria from entering the crock.
Because these crocks are handmade in a small studio, minor differences between crocks are to be expected. However, we feel that these discrepancies are part of the unique beauty of these crocks. The ceramic artists hand draw the designs on the side of the crocks, which means slight variations are to be expected.
The Rustic Fermenting Crocks are fired in an antique kiln. The artisan stacks the lids and crocks for firing. Because of this the top edges and the bottom of the crock are not glazed. The lid is not glazed on the bottom edge or the top perimeter. These unglazed portions do not effect fermenting.
This crock is available in 3L or 4L sizes. The 3L crocks have tapered sides, and the 4L crocks have straight sides. The smaller size makes it easier to move around and fits great on your countertop. It's perfect for experimenting with small batches or for storing and serving your pickles! This crock includes a pair of Luna Glass Crock Weights for keeping your veggies below the brine. Both sizes come undecorated or with a decorative etching of cucumbers on the side, which you can choose at checkout.
This is a Stone Creek Trading exclusive item, we promise you won't find it anywhere else. Because these are made in a small ceramic studio, we can only get a few at a time. So if you want one, be sure to order now!
