Forget the expression, "put a bird on it." We prefer anchors! And aren't these new items from Hartstone Pottery darling? We love how they've taken the utilitarian mug, fashioned it out of the finest stoneware, and gussied it up with a sailing theme.
Hartstone has a pretty interesting backstory. They're located in Zaneville, Ohio, a river town founded in 1797 by pioneer farmers who saw an opportunity to make pottery because of the rich clay on the banks. For over 40 years, Hartstone has been continuing the pottery heritage of the region, and some of their employees come from a line of several generations of potters.
They're known for making beautiful, hand crafted ceramics that stand the test of time, and some of their designs from over the years are now collectible. Using the quality materials they find in their own backyard, their products are handmade out of vitrified stoneware clay, high-fired and hand painted. (And lucky for us, they are microwave and dishwasher safe.) We love supporting this time-honored craft by carrying this heirloom quality line in our shop! Shop for these beauty's online here.
