Care of pit pottery

Pit fired pottery is bisque and fired at a lower temperature than a traditional electric or gas kiln.  Therefore it is porous and should not be used for liquids.  In addition, it is not sealed with a glaze so it is not food safe.  It is sealed with a layer of Dorland’s Wax Medium which highlights its colors and gives it a durable coating.
