What is Stoneware?

Durable

Stoneware resists chipping and extremes of temperature making it ideal for serving food, baking in an oven, using on a hob or in a microwave.

When glazed it is also waterproof, suitable for dishwashers as well as use in the fridge.

Dense

Stoneware is made from less porous, denser clay that must be fired at a higher temperature. This means objects are usually heavier than a similar item made in porcelain or earthenware.

Textured

Stoneware, when it is fired, develops a wonderful grainy texture that enhances the feeling of coffee cups, mugs or bowls in the hand.
