I am so happy to know Ron and Shar; Twisted River Clay is my go-to place to find the 1. best crafted mugs on the planet 2. special gifts for special people 3. highest quality hand-made - here in Connecticut pottery. I start to gush silly adjectives when I talk about how much I adore their creations. The mugs in particular - have a certain feel and shape that none can duplicate. WHen people come here and use one of ours, they invariably ask - oh, where did you find THIS mug? And I have to lie, and say oh I just found it somewhere - because I'll save the truth for giving a gift of the mugs. Always expertly packed and quickly sent (when in stock of course), and artistically and wonderfully created. Merry Christmas to my favorite potters in the universe! xoxodeb

About

Handmade is HOMEMADE here at TwistedRiverClay!

We are Ron and Char enjoying life in our tiny home-based pottery studio nestled in the rolling hills and farmlands along the Quinebaug River, a 69-mile-long ‘twisting river’ that connects with the Aspinook pond in Canterbury CT … our home town.

Here, in this quaint township, is where we take pleasure in using traditional methods to craft pottery with the same rustic, woodland charm as the countryside surrounding us. Here is where we bring clay and color together into a unique treasure for you to enjoy for a lifetime.

Whether a functional piece or one designed for decorative use, we welcome you to enjoy the pieces we love to make!

Frequently asked questions

Safety and Care Instructions

Designed for every day use, our heirloom quality pottery makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.

SAFETY & CARE RECOMMENDATIONS

- Our pottery is food safe and lead free.

- Our pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe. Use the appliance manufacturer's directions for ceramics. Handwashing is always preferred for handmade clay pieces. Allow pottery to cool before washing. Use gentle cleansers made without citrus scents or harsh, abrasive ingredients to preserve color and finish. Dry thoroughly between uses.

- Our bakeware is oven safe to 400° F. Distribute food evenly in the pan and warm together to desired temperature. Remove from oven to a dry, neutral surface like a wood trivet or soft mat to avoid thermal shock.

Shipping Duration

Ready-made orders are packed and shipped within 1-3 business days of purchase.

We ship USPS Priority Mail. The average delivery time estimated by USPS is 3-5 business days.

Our Shop's Inventory

We offer ready-made functional and decorative pottery. As time permits, we accept custom name mug orders during late Winter and early Fall months only. Contact us for more details.

Each pot is made completely by hand one-piece-at-a-time.

We do our best to create selected mainstay products to a high-degree of uniformity. However, variance from piece-to-piece and batch-to-batch is a normal characteristic ... this is the hallmark of handmade and the quality that makes each piece a unique piece of art.

Gift Receipt

We include a packing slip with each order. If a Gift Receipt is needed, please include a sentiment in the Note area of the cart. We will include the note and exclude all parts of the packing slip that reference money or payment method.
