Shrink pots are made only from green unseasoned wood. A log is hollowed out from end to end. A groove is made near the bottom of one end a disc cut from dry plank bottom is inserted. As the pot dries it shrinks around the disc holding it firm. A lid is then made. This is a skilled job requiring experience and knowledge of techniques and woods. The larger the pot the more difficult it is to make requiring more skill.

Shrink pots are all individual and at the moment we do not list them for sale on this site. If you would like to buy one then please visit me at a show, my workshop or ask to be sent images of the pots, via email, available at this time.

We also run course on how to make your own shrink pots
