An American Classic: The 2004 Historical Collection

 Once a year, Rowe Pottery Works introduces a new collection of historical pottery that reflects the rich culture of generations past. This year is no exception.  The Historical Collection 2004 Limited Edition Series features hand-crafted designs influenced by early American stoneware that combined practicality and beauty.

  Although created with techniques from the 1800's, this collection has a certain ageless quality.  The forms are hand thrown on the potter's wheel, then decorations are hand brushed with a deep cobalt blue.  The pots are browned by wood ash vapor in the firing to render an authentic aged look.  The earthy texture and rustic coloration are the distinctive markings of pottery fired in a wood fueled kiln.  Each piece will be stamped to this collection and marked by both the potter and decorator. Step by step, our artisans add individual characteristics until a collectible is created.

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.  The finish on the Historical Collection varies from brownish to pale grey.  This is due to the firing process that is different every time.

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.
