This type of black china is crafted on the low wheel, which the potter moves with his hand. It is baked in "Songs", an open kiln in the soil. The fuel used is "brão", a type of turf that exists on an alluvial surface located at the top of the Montemuro mountains. This manner of baking clay, gives the china it's black colour, due to the reduction of oxygen in the air.
