Limestone earthenware bowls and jars, equipped with a small device that allows the felt-tips to touch the ceramic’s surface. Limestone-based-clays absorb liquids, so these particular ceramic pieces will suck in the felt-tip ink. The colouring process depends on the degree of porosity of the ceramic paste, its thickness, as well as the level of humidity and also the distribution of the pens through the surface of the pieces.
