I have watched the artisan bread video a number of time and have my first batch in the oven right now. I am trying it in a cast iron skillet, but I want to get a clay baker to bake it in like you used on your show. You said your neighbor is a potter and you got it from him.
In my area there is a place called Mississippi Mud Pottery and I called there and emailed the video to the gentleman who makes the pottery. He was also intrigued by this recipe and is going to test it in his clay pottery to make sure that putting this moist dough into a very hot piece of pottery will break the pottery. Is is possible to find out what kind of clay pottery it is and if the inside of the pot was glazed?
The gentleman at the pottery store that watched the video, said he thinks his will work, but he said there are various types of clay pottery and he could not tell from the video if the inside of her pot was glazed or what type of clay was used. I didn't know if someone could find out more info on the pot or if your neighbor-potter has a website to contact him at. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks for showing interest in the artisan bread. I would love to know how your bread turned out.
Is the link to Ed Hams pottery. He makes a wonderful product at a great price. I don't know anything about the clay or the glazing but I am sure that Ed would share information with you.
