Slow Food

Never has spending time on healthy food preparation been so easy. All you need to make tangy, probiotic sauerkraut, for example, is shredded cabbage and a sprinkling of salt. That's it! Simply put the ingredients into this stoneware fermenting crock from ceramicist Daniel Bellow, leave it alone for 1-2 weeks, and nature does the rest.

You can use the crock to make pickles, kimchi, and all kinds of delicious, healthy good-for-you veggies. The sturdy lid is designed to help keep the vegetables submersed in their naturally-forming juices, and placing something heavy on top to weigh it down helps create optimal conditions for anaerobic fermentation. Each crock is handcrafted, one at a time, in Bellow's ceramics studio using techniques that are nearly as ancient as fermentation itself. Handmade in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

Made in Massachusetts

Daniel Bellow

Daniel Bellow



Daniel Bellow's pottery is hand-thrown on his potter's wheel in a 19th-century carriage barn in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. His work is all about form. He single-glazes his pottery and lets the kiln do the rest. The kiln in question has a reduction atmosphere, which yields uniquely rich glazes.

Daniel notes that "things that are made by hand have a life of their own, a spirit that machine made objects, no matter how well designed, are lacking. Surround yourself with useful, beautiful things made by real people. A life well-lived is itself a work of art."
