Murska Sobota Things to Do: 27 reviews and 50 photos
In our day plan there were many more places to visit and our next stop over was settlement Filovci, well known for pottery. We were strolling around and very soon Mr. Drago joined us. He unlocked the door of an old house where pottery is displayed for viewing and also for selling. Biba and Silva purchased special pans for baking chickens. They are trying to buy organic chicken now, and as I know, unsuccessfully so far. We didn’t rush, Mr.Drago had a lot of time, it was Sunday Morning, and he showed us over the ancient thached roof houses in the open air museum.
The entire Prekmurje region is known for quality pottery, but the finest goods come from Filovci. A specialty of Prekmurje pottery is black ceramics which uses a special firing method and no glazing. A special semi-globe shaped oven with seven to eight chimneys is required for this firing method. Today, black ceramics are only produced in Filovci. Even there less and less as Mr.Drago told us.
The spindles now run on electricity, but the masters of Filovci still produce excellent products that are not only functional, but also decorative.
