Because all of Rowe Pottery products are handmade, you will not find the consistency of machine made, production-line products. The size and shape of a piece will vary and the individual decorator who creates your piece will influence the pattern. Throwing ridges created by the potter's hand as it turns on the wheel, brown flashings created in the kiln where two pots "kiss" each other all add to the character and uniqueness of your particular piece. These are inherent traits of salt glaze stoneware and make each piece a joy for you and generations to come.

Early Americans cherished their stoneware for its durability in oven and hearth. Crocks, jars and jugs had to withstand daily use and perform equally well in extreme hot and cold temperatures. Today we enjoy authentic salt glaze for the same reasons.  It's 100% food safe and use it in the oven, microwave and is dishwasher safe.

Rowe Pottery is handmade with pride just like it was 150 years ago.

Historical 2011

There is an old adage among craftsman that the primary form of an object follows its function. Our historical collection for 2011 reminds us that this past is worthy of reflection. The kitchen throughout history and still today remains the focal point of the home, our 2012 Historical Collection continues to build on this strong tradition. This year’s pieces are unique in that they have strong utilitarian uses, but are less common forms to find. Our Yellowware preserve jar builds on the strong success of the 2010 butter crock. Yellowware preserve jars were never manufactured in large quantities so are quite hard to find. Our low cake crock resembles the ever popular salt glaze crocks, however its low nature traditionally lended itself to cake baking and storage, these too were made in much smaller quantities as they traditionally did not hold up well to the extreme baking temperatures. Pitchers are common in pottery history and remain one of the only tableware pieces that were commonly thrown, ours evokes a full rounded shape with a short neckband, traditionally used for cream or milk storage. Our footed bowl form is modeled after a more unique colander form traditionally used. The bowl would be elevated to help with the food drainage, this reproduction will sit beautifully atop a bountiful dining table. Ceramic rolling pins were preferred by many to wooden ones for traditional use, they were smoother than wood and the cooler surface meant dough was less likely to stick We have given much attention to the detail of every piece in our 2011 collection, it is wonderful to reflect on the hours that were traditionally spent in a kitchen to prepare a meal and take joy in the progress that has been made over time.

Colorization varies greatly due to the Salt Glaze style of firing the pottery - Colors from pale grey blue to dark brown are normal -

we can not speculate on what color you will receive - each is a limited edition - all will have brown and blue spots
