Standard color as priced in the white or blue stripe. You may choose other colors using the drop-down box at the top of the page. Some colors are hand-painted and signed by the artist. Please note: the rooster, red apple, and summer splendor design is a decal and is not hand painted. The Poppy Seed design will include flowers in both blue and peach, which may be on opposite sides of the stoneware.

Depending on where it is in the kiln the actual white colors may vary between cream and white with some grayish hue or even towards a tan, beige color. Another characteristic of old-fashioned hand-turned pottery.

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.
Note: Grease from cured bacon keeps well in this crock. Grease from other uncured meats such as hamburger will turn rancid.
The inside of the jar is glazed. The lid top is glazed, but the underside of the lid is unglazed just like the old crocks were made. This is to prevent the lid from sticking inside the kiln.
We checked our own collection and found many of the antique pottery jar lids including butter churn lids were made unglazed on the bottom side of the lids. Our pottery maker indicates the lids would stick to the kiln floor if they glaze the bottom side.
