This distinctive unglazed black pottery has been produced in and around the town of Mohács in southern Hungary for centuries. The black color derives from a special firing process in which the kiln is deprived of oxygen, causing the clay to carbonize. All pieces are hand-thrown and individually decorated, therefore, no two pieces are identical. The plates are traditionally hung on the wall and have slots on the back for a wire. Although laborers once used the jugs and pitchers to carry drinking water into the fields, today they are purely decorative objects and not intended for use with food or drink. Because the clay is slightly porous, it is recommended that a coaster or doily be placed under vases holding water. Laszló Reininger, the artist who makes our black pottery, learned the craft from his grandfather and estimates that members of his family have been producing this type of pottery for over 200 years.
