Marcigny, a small town nestled in the hills of Southern Burgundy, has been home to Emile Henry for 150 years. Thanks to its rich clay the Burgundy region has remained a fertile area for potters, who pass their savoir-faire from generation to generation. Today, true to tradition, every piece of Emile Henry is made in Marcigny with rich, Burgundy clay.
While respecting traditional techniques, Emile Henry products are 100% natural and boast technological advances (Ceradon ) that make it resistant to mechanical and thermal shock. Emile Henry’s Salt Pig is a charming and handy way to keep your favorite salt at-hand. The wide opening accommodates even the largest of hands, and the slightly arched hood helps keep your salt free of food debris while cooking. The simple, yet classic shape of this piece is further emphasized by the vibrant colors and deep hues of the glazes.
