«Scientists have managed to recreate the medieval technology of making kashi dishware, many of such objects had been found in the Saratov region, in the territory where the medieval town of Ukek was located in the XIIIth century. Last year, a grant was received to study and recreate the 'kashin' [a composite white frit material used to make kashi pottery — Chrdk] in the amount of 1 million rubles, and we have already managed to make several bowls,» Kubankin said.

Anna Kashnikova, an archaeologist and the project manager, said that kashin is a multi-component compound, and the composition have long been a matter of debates among the scientists. Products made of it were manufactured by casting, and then the finished vessels were covered with paints and glaze.
