Custom Pipkin

Postby theowl » Mon May 04, 2020 4:24 am

I tasked my potter friend with designing a pipkin that would fit in my pack and gave him a few design elements that were shared on the forum. I'm excited to get it in hand and see how it works.

The glaze is lovely, I'd be so worried I would break it if I took it out on the trail.

Well that's just lovely!

I was messaging a potter about getting a custom pipkin for my kit, but the conversation just sort of stalled out, as online back-and-forths are wont to do.

Any details you can give us on dimensions, capacity, weight, etc?

Nothing exact until Iget it in hand, but I had him build it to hold about a quart. I'll do a much more thorough post once it's here.


My guy is functionalmud on etsy. He is all about middle earth, and he had a lot of fun making mine, so I'd hit him up. Most of the stuff in my cupboards was made by him, so i can attest to the quality.

That's amazing. I love the leaf/arrowhead design! I am looking to make my kit both more functional and beautiful like that. Looks like I might have to hit your guy up as well. Just need to learn how to use a pipkin first! :lol:
