HOME|ORDER

These terra cotta decanters are entirely handmade in house and have been waterproofed with100% food grade beeswax. The vessel is heated so that hot wax completely impregnates the inner surface, seeps deeply into the seams and completely seals them, thus making wax preferable to glaze.

The taps are brass, and are removable. They are sealed with Food Grade sealant.

The lids are designed to fit very tightly but are not 100% airtight. The decanters are made of terra cotta and lined with beeswax. They can be made smaller or larger upon request up to 33 inches tall. Price will be less for smaller sizes, considerably more for larger vessels. You can choose Buff or Mica Red Terra Cotta Clay.
