the wares.

Contemporary ceramics made with traditional techniques. 

Our purpose is to bring beauty and simplicity back to useful handcrafted ceramics. 

food safe

The great part of our wares being made with stoneware clay is that they are non-porous, allowing each ware's surface to be easily kept clean and safe. All wares are glazed with food-safe elements, safe for your family to eat off of. 

dishwasher safe

All wares are durable and cured twice by high-temperature firings. Dishwasher-safe and microwavable. Stronger than glass, durable as stone. - Please note that wares are not meant for oven use unless specially noted in a ware's description.

handcrafted

Hand-spun on the potters' wheel. Traditional techniques and tools are used in tooling wares. All wares receive a special mix of 3-6 search elements and 2-4 earthen oxides that, when cured by a high firing within the pottery kiln, it adheres to the stoneware clay body to create a matte glazed surface.

 

the craftsman.

Also known as Thomas Kilian. He was awarded the "Heritage Artist" of IBXArts in 2010 and "Artist of the Year" by Scuppernong Gazette in 2009. He and his family were featured in Our State in 2010. A major difference in Kilian’s work has been based on authenticity. He develops his own glazes and has been unfettered by conventional training as he is self-taught. Kilian started in clay at the tender age of eight and opened his ceramic studio in 2007 in the swamps of the Inner Banks of North Carolina. His 13 years of experience have yielded many accomplishments, such as creating a collection for "Historic Somerset Plantation" and designing & crafting the "Hi-Plains School of Missions" participant award, providing at large ceramic demonstrations, and exhibiting in the exclusive Imperial Art Centre's HANDCRAFTED Exhibition 2019.
