These ceramic crocks are thick and opaque, keeping heat and light out -- as if the vegetables are in a sensory deprivation tank. Be inspired to experiment with krauts, fermented drinks, and vin de pampelmousse.
Fermentation jars are crafted with a waterlock seal, an ancient design which allows for an oxygen-free environment – the gold standard of vegetable fermentation. To use, prepare and pack vegetables inside the jar, then fill the channel at the jar’s mouth with water. Once the lid is placed into the water, fermentation begins, creating CO2, which in turn pushes oxygen out of the seal and maintains an oxygen free ferment

Sarah works in Oakland, California where the combination of a rich and robust pottery tradition and the inspiration of coastal California combine to inform the nature of her work. She started making ceramics at a young age and founded her studio in 2012. In the beginning, she hand threw her signature fermentation jars, working alone on the wheel. She quickly realized that working as a team of one wasn’t sustainable and began learning about production techniques that would allow her to create her signature work with the help of others. Today, they are a team of nine and every day they make ceramics from start to finish in a 6,000 square foot studio in Oakland. All of their glaze formulas, clay formulas, designs, and molds are custom made in house. They utilized modern and traditional processes to make their work. Their ceramics are enjoyed by individuals in their homes and chefs in their restaurants.
