Seeds love to be sprouted in these handmade sprouting pots. The Sprouting pot is a sprouting dish made from self gathered natural clay that SEEDS LOVE. Clay is a good material for sprouting as it absorbs water and ventilates. I wished to develop a product for the clay that I collected which would combine earthyness, local materials and sustainable development. The pot is also a beautiful artifact to be placed on a table so it does not need to hidden in a cupboard. H 17 cm D 15 cm. Hand wash, sanitize in oven. HOW IT WORKS: Soak seeds or beans for 8-12 hours. Put seeds into the colander and rinse thoroughly with cool water. Set sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature. Rinse/drain 2 times per day. Harvest in 2-5 days. They will store best in your refrigerator if they are dry to the touch. GOOD FOR SPROUTING: mungbeans, lentils, peas, brassica seeds etc… WHY SPROUTS ARE SO HEALTHY: “The main reason for eating sprouts is about nutrition and digestion. It’s essentially about getting the most benefit out of a plant in the most biologically concentrated form. When you sprout foods, you increase proteolytic enzymes that make both carbohydrates and proteins digestible. While your body produces proteolytic enzymes when you eat foods that don’t contain digestive enzymes, your body is forced to manufacture them (instead of making enzymes it should be making). After a while, your body’s ability to produce the right enzymes wanes along with its ability to fight off disease.”
Hoe Het Gemaakt Is
All the products are small batch, handcrafted ceramics. Products are made in North Karelia, Finland, by Henriikka Leppänen. Clay as a material is filled with energy that has travelled through ice ages and gains it’s final form in the heat of the kiln Wheelthrowing is fascinating ancient method to form clay. In Ancient Egyptian mythology, the deity Khnum was said to have formed the first humans on a potter’s wheel. Wheelthrowing requires lots of skills and practise. A round, moist lumpy clump of clay body is thrown at a wheelhead. The clump is made even and forced to the centre of the wheel by applying pressure with the hands. The sides thus defined are pulled up and made thinner by pressure between the hands.
