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!
Ron + Char
Inspired Original Designs ... every piece is handmade, one-of-a-kind, uniquely yours, and an heirloom to enjoy for a lifetime!

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.
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
Our shop's inventory is made ready to ship. At times, our schedule may allow us to accept orders for pieces out of stock or larger quantities of our standard shapes. Please contact us if to inquire about availability.
Each pot is made completely by hand one-piece-at-a-time. We do our best to maintain a high-degree of uniformity across batches. 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.
Please let us know when a package is shipping direct to a gift recipient so we can format the packing slip to exclude any reference to payment and include a personal message too ... just let us know what you wish to say in the cart's note area.
