Hawksbill Pottery produces a unique collection of handcrafted stoneware. Some pieces are thrown on a potter’s wheel while others are hand built with slabs and extruded pieces. Each piece is embossed with original designs and hand painted with lead free studio mixed glazes. Our glazing technique is similar to a batik process. A variety of masking materials are used between layers of glaze to create colorful designs and patterns. All pieces are ovenproof, dishwasher and microwave safe. Unlike earthenware, stoneware has been fired to a very high temperature, vitrifying the clay to create a strong and durable finished product. Each piece is painted free hand with a brush, giving spontaneous life to each piece. We believe this direct process infuses the object with human energy. If cared for properly, your piece should last a lifetime and be enjoyed by generations to come.
