Pottery with heart, soul, tradition.....and whimsy.

baumanstoneware is taking a short break.

Because I will be at an art fair, we are putting our Etsy page into "vacation mode". I don't want people to have to wait a week to have their orders processed. I will be uploading more work when I get back.

baumanstoneware's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my shopping site!

I've been making a living with potter's wheel and kiln, clay and glazes, for 30 years now. What an interesting time in which we live. Back in 1978 I headed down the road with my '66 Buick Skylark packed from dashboard to trunk with the first pots I'd made in my tiny (8'X16') shop. And now, thirty years later, I'm beginning this new adventure -- packing up my shopping site with pixels of pots for sale. I don't even have to pull out of my driveway!

My pottery is high-fired stoneware. Stoneware is a clay that is fired high enough to be vitrified. That means it would be non-porous even if it weren't glazed. My glazes are all food safe. The pottery is microwavable, dishwasher safe, and can be used in the oven (where size and function and practicality permit).

This isn't factory work. My wife, Dar, and I make every piece by hand. We have no employees. We use a potter's wheel and have two gas-fired kilns in which we fire the work.

The pieces you select to buy will be packed well for shipping. We've shipped for most of our thirty years and have lost VERY few pieces in all those years.
