Running Late

BreadPots in Kiln
BreadPots too hot to touch.

I should have had these BreadPots made weeks ago, but with a conspiracy of travel, a computer failure, and an injured shoulder, I am running late. I sold the last one just as i was firing up this batch last week.  So, here they are, complete, for any one who wants one.  After I ship out all that were pre-ordered, there will be 12 left. I will be in the studio this week for drop in for these and any other work. I have some gorgeous saggar flame painted pieces too.

I just cracked open the kiln. There they are and I can’t touch them yet. Too hot. They came out of rich dark color. The white powder is alumina used for keeping the lids from sticking at 2350F/1300C. There are twenty BreadPots in this load. I will post, once they are out about what I have…plain, smoky, recipe, breadquotes. The mugs you see are special order.

Here are the two with a rye bread recipe inscribed. One has J’s Rye recipe alone, the other has Rye Bread and also a quote.

Word of Mouth Marketing

Thanks to you, the BreadPot project has grown by word of mouth, and some very nice media coverage. If you have not seen them, click on Michael Piazza‘s cool video and the Fire Clay Flour article by Andrew Janjigian in Edible Boston Fall 2012.

It is satisfying to participate in bringing people to baking bread using this simple method and simple tool. It is challenging to work through the design and production issues. It is pleasure to custom paint a wedding BreadPot. It is exciting to interact with bakers all over the world.  It is rewarding to mentor and help new potters to get a start.  And the bread is yum.

I don’t like being marketed to. I shut down and play dead. I am reluctant to spend my time to do that to others. I do, however, want to get the BreadPots out of the kiln and into your ovens. Getting holiday orders in early helps us plan.

Please share the simple joy of baking bread in a hand made, well designed  baker.
Like Breadpots on Facebook, follow and share and all that stuff.

Contact me if you need another payment method, have a special request, want to pick one up at the studio, have a question. I won’t be in the studio on Small Business Saturday, but think of us and place your order early.

I am grateful for your interest and support. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving. Only eat the good bread.
