Handmade in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Queensland, Australia
As these Ceramic Water Purifiers are individually handmade and are as unique and individual as we are, you will not find two water filter pots the same. They are handmade from Porcelain clay and glazed in Crystalline Glaze making them the perfect container for dispensing clean chemical free water.
Crystalline Glaze, with their often stunning large crystals forming canopies of coloured snowflakes over the glaze surface, has many devotees and collectors. Believed to have been developed in England at the turn of the 19th century but was discarded because of the large number of losses due to the high fluidity of the glaze.
The Crystals are formed by an interaction of minerals with silica (the glass former) and zinc (the flux). Crystal development occurs during the cooling cycle, with wide variety shape and sizes from the microcrystal to microcrystal which can be up to 75 mm across. The colours are derived from a variety of metal oxides gold from iron, green from copper pink from manganese as well as the elusive nickel the only mineral to give two separate colours a blue crystal on a tan back ground.
