In the village of Rujište near Ražanj, making crepulja pans is a craft that dates back to the 19th century. These round pans are made of two types of clay – “lulavica” and sandy clay, and both are extracted at the nearby locality Crepuljarsko Brdo. The manufacturing process includes: digging clay; mixing clay by trampling; manual shaping of vessels; drying; “tinning” with the remains of scraped tiles (“struganka”), spraying with water and smoothing; drying – “smoking”; baking in the “furnace” kiln; tying with wire; and “ashing” with ash from the kiln.
The crepulja pans are made in three sizes and may be with or without a hole in the middle. Pots with a hole are used for flatbread and bread loaves, while pots without a hole are used for various dishes. In the village of Rujište pottery is traditionally made by men, but women are gradually also starting to learn this craft.
