Small Square Stoneware Planter

Salt-glazed stoneware was first made in the 1400s and it’s still being made today in the same traditional way. The glaze has a lemon peel type texture – a slightly bumpy surface which is created by the salt in the kiln. In salt-glazing pottery, unglazed pieces are placed in the kiln and heated to a very high temperature. Salt is then thrown into the hot kiln. The salt fumes throughout the kiln interior, and combines with the silica in the clay pottery to form a natural glaze on all the pots. These pieces are handmade and have natural variation to them - no two pieces are alike. Salt glazed pottery is made to be used every day; it’s extremely durable and lasts decades. During extreme cold, stoneware should be brought indoors or placed in sheltered area.

We have several pieces that date back to the 19th century!

Imported from England.
