The Stoneware Art Factory, one of the oldest stoneware manufacturers in the United States, has again partnered with the great American gardener Jon Carloftis.
Part of The Jon Carloftis Collection, the simple, traditional crock is available in three sizes and four finishes. The two crescent-shaped handles, inspired by the crocks of the 1800s, are hand pressed and attached. Left in its natural state, this crock and matching saucer set is not glazed.
Paying homage the company’s late-1800s and early-1900s name -- the Louisville Pottery Company logo is hand embossed on the front of each crock.
“If names such as Hewell's and Louisville Stoneware” sound familiar, that's because for years these artisans have been turning the clay that Southern gardeners have cursed into containers that are works of art." -- Southern Living, March 2013
Available in four colors and three sizes, the crocks are perfect for the kitchen counter and storage of utensils or a paper towel roll. The crock comes with two small vent holes along the bottom and a thin saucer making it a versatile planter for herbs and forcing bulbs.
The crocks are also sold individually.
Stoneware is naturally resilient, resisting scratches and fading. And because Stoneware is frost- and freeze-proof, it will stand up to the elements. With any stoneware item, extreme and sudden variation in temperature may cause cracking or breakage. Stoneware is oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer safe.
