The Karipot can be pre-ordered here. This unique product is made in small batches, and as a result lead time is approx. 8-10 weeks.
The pot can be used widely on a range of heat sources, from the hob – both gas and electric – to the oven. The collection celebrates oven to table style eating, and is perfect for one-pot dishes. Ideal for slow cooking, but also for everyday meals.
The natural properties of the materials – stone and clay enhance the cooking experience, while preserving the ingredients’ oils and flavours. The burnishing process makes the cooking surface naturally non-stick. Once cooked, the pot also stays warmer for longer when on the table.
At each stage of the manufacturing process, we have created interventions that highlight the handmade aspect, while reducing the production time for the artisans. For example, introducing 3D printed moulds has allowed for greater detailing, sharper lines and precise forms. The contoured underside of the lid allows for excellent moisture retention and self-basting properties.
Best hand washed with a hard brush.
A collection of ceramic cookware designed in collaboration with Mathew Sasa, who comes from a family of multi award winning ceramicists from the remote village of Longpi. Longpi sits on the disputed border between the states of Nagaland, and Manipur, in the North Eastern part of India.
Longpi is famous for it’s widely recognized craft using a unique ceramic material that is made from a locally found ‘serpentine’ stone and river clay. These ceramic pieces are entirely hand-built and burnished, and are fired at low temperatures without any glazes making them completely bio-degradable. Working with Mathew, we have designed a range of contemporary cookware – that harnesses the unique properties of the clay as a cooking material, by combining design interventions such as 3D printed moulding with traditional hand-building techniques.
