I just bought a clay pot made in a small village in Baja California using traditional pit firing. It has a beautiful Raku-like finish, but is unglazed. I was told I could use it in the oven or directly on the gas burner. I would like to take good care of it because the potter is in her 80s and one of the last in the area to use traditional techniques. How should I care for it?
