Stoneware Pottery is USA-made in Texas by a small family-owned and operated pottery company, which has been making quality pottery for over 22 years. Each piece is hand turned by a master potter, hand-painted or finished, and then coated with a lead-free glaze.
Because pottery is hand turned dimensions may vary slightly. Stoneware pottery may also develop small imperfections during the firing and glazing process. All food contact surfaces are inspected for such imperfections before shipping. The outside may have imperfections that add to the character of the stoneware.
Lids on stoneware pottery are made just like the old ones and then fired. In order to fire them, some of the bottoms are left unglazed where they will sit in the kiln. This is normal so they do not stick during the process. The original lids were made the same as you can see on antique crocks and churns.
