The opening measures 1 3/4. Facts from the Web about Korond Pottery. The amazing art of pottery in Korond, Romania, has been described as one for all ages, with corresponding written records to far back as 1613.This middle-aged tradition soon catapulted the Harghita county, on the east of Transylvania into an industry sustained by the renewable art of pottery and made a name for itself as one of the most remarkable pottery types and ceramics. The people of Korond often produced pottery in the shape of discs and the routine plates, pots, jars, cups, and bowls, etc.
Most of which were glazed with contrasting colors. Although it is unclear how pottery began in Korond, some natives believe -and suggest- that the art was handed down to them divinely, and it started when the world began. The traditions upheld by the Koronds in their dealings with pottery and glazing are meant to represent the Szelkez peoples culture. The pottery began as a strict hand-made trade and only began to use the electric potters wheel in 2015. Nearly every household in the Koronds can boast of a pottery studio for creating their versions of heavenly nostalgia.
The trade is usually passed down from father to son and from mother to daughter and is often a family trade, as seen in this exhibition by the Lazlo family. Although most of their pottery is glazed with white and cobalt blue, the Koronds were undoubtedly not so reserved when choosing colors, as they often make use of other colors like black, red, yellow, blue, and other fanciful colors that catch the eyes. The entire process of making and decorating pottery in Korond is done by hand. Not only does this guarantee that each piece of pottery is unique, but it also shows how dearly the Korond potters hold their traditions.
How Is Korund Pottery Made? From the beginning of the molding process, all aspects are significant and greatly valued to the potter. For example, the clay is gotten from the venerated Sacadat creek before curing and dried in strips for final use. When the clay strips are ready to be used, they are retrieved, placed in water to restore some of the lost wetness before it is kneaded into the shape the potter desires.
Admittedly, some potters make use of the potters wheel to assist them in the throwing and kneading process; in making the wall art pottery, most Korond potters make use of their hands, flattening and reshaping the clay as they go. Later on, the pottery is left in the sun to remove as much moisture as is possible before it is placed in specially designed heating areas and/ or ovens for baking. After this, some potters apply glaze, vitrify the pottery, and bake again.
