Ancient Stoneware

This collection of slab rolled stoneware pottery was inspired by my growing interest in ancient pottery unearthed on archeological digs. I thought it would be interesting to make functional ware that had the appearance of ancient pottery. I first made them for personal use and found then to be extremely durable. Each piece is handbuilt using a hump mold, so they will vary sightly but be uniform in size. The bottoms are flattened for minimal rocking. This pottery is contemporized by colorful matte glazes that are dinnerware and dishwasher safe.
