SPECIAL PROCESS ~ OUR SIGNATURE FINISH
This stoneware is our finest work. These pots are
crafted from reddish brown or gray clay. Our special process creates a surface
effect that is subtle, yet strikingly exquisite, like that of deep grained
burnished leather or the appearance of having been hewn from fine-grained
marbled granite. They must be seen to be appreciated. The process is very labor
intensive and all is done by hand. This process creates ancient pots right from

New! Stoneware Slabs
Our stoneware slabs take
the place of slate and granite slabs;
they have ample drainage holes and/or tie in holes.
They have an exquisite natural texture!
Their designed concavity makes them as easy to use as
ovals or rectangles.
Remember, when a slab is shown it can be position
oriented (to the viewer) to display the planting to its
best by turning it as needed.
Something that is artistically awkward with ovals or
rectangles that did not get potted perfectly.
Various sizes and shapes will be in stock.
Or we can custom make a slab from a sketch if you have a
preferred form (order well in advance) . Or just request
an approximate length, width, and average depth ( please
order well in advance). You will receive a no obligation
quote and/or in stock availability. Please
