The historical use of wood for molds

Let's step back in time and discover the fascinating history of the use of wooden molds in pottery.

For centuries, craftspeople have exploited this technique to shape pieces with perfect forms and warm textures. The use of wood to create pottery molds goes back to ancient times, when potters used hollowed-out sections of tree trunks to bring their creations to life. This tradition has continued through the ages, with variations and improvements made to the techniques used to make wooden molds.

To conclude, choosing to use wooden molds in pottery goes beyond a simple shaping technique. It's a conscious choice that combines the beauty of natural materials, durability and a commitment to eco-friendly practices. By using wooden molds, potters can express their creativity while respecting nature and contributing to a more sustainable way of life.
