The eagle has landed. My new pot of brick clay has finally ended its travels and landed in its permanent home in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. It arrived in perfect condition and is doing just fine, thank you. Here it is with a loaf of wheat/rye bread with flaxseeds and wheatberries. Its flatter, wider shape also makes it a great breadbox. Thank you so, Judy.
And don't think I'll be ignoring the original glazed pot. It's become one of my best rising vessels, and keeper for all sorts of things, and I still hope to bake beans in it someday soon. For those of you who have been asking me about the availability of these beautiful vessels, a new batch will hit the market shortly. Keep your eyes open at http://www.motzkin.com/.
