Our Artisan Process in creating quality Stoneware.
Vessels With Utility and Artistry Crafted Through a Combination of Skilled Ceramic-Working and Technical Relief-Painting

The perfect natural clay composition, stoneware is known for its ability to handle high heat, non-toxic natural clay, steadfast weight, and long lasting durability are just a few of the qualities you would expect from a quality vessel. The
The stoneware decanters are twice baked in a high-fire kiln at temperatures reaching 1700˚F. This first bake transforming raw clay down to a molecular level the high heat and curing process forces out tiny air pockets condensing the material so that it is literally as hard as a rock, hence the name "stoneware". The baked stoneware has a wonderful natural vanilla color with a soft matte finish.
The Textures of Relief Painting
The Azules pattern and detailed artwork is applied by the skilled hands of artisan painters, this intricate process occurs on each individual decanter and cap it is a practice that insures both patterns and artwork on each piece are never exactly the same. This innovative artisan technique is called "relíeve" meaning "relief", the technique requires skilled artisans to apply layers of natural lead free paint by hand to the surface of each decanter. During the 2nd bake this relief painting technique literally raises the painted pattern providing a glossy texture just to the painted areas a beautiful contrast to the surface of the stoneware.
