Chamba Black Pottery Giveaway

These pottery pieces are not your ordinary earthen vessels — they are beautiful pieces of history. These are Chamba black pottery, a craft unique to the town of La Chamba in Tolima, Colombia.

The clay itself possesses a distinct composition marked by the presence of mica, which enhances heat resistance, making it ideal for cookware and bakeware. They are hand-formed by artisan women from the small villages in this Andean town, burnished, and fired, in pretty much the same way it has been done for 700 years. The addition of powdered grass near the end of the firing process gives these vessels their arresting smoky blackness.

And to celebrate Greentea Design’s Kitchen and Bath Sale, we’re excited to be giving away a set of these amazing kitchenware! Just comment on a post on our Facebook page from March 29 until April 10, 2012 and you’ll be entered into a draw for this stunning set!

Full contest rules are available here.

Best of luck everyone!
