Medium Square Stoneware Planter

Medium square salt glazed stoneware planter for the garden. Light blue color with natural variation.  Makers mark on one side.  Imported from     England

Salt-glazed stoneware was first made in the 1400s and it’s still being made today in the same traditional way. The glaze has a lemon peel type texture     – a slightly bumpy surface which is created by the salt in the kiln.    
   
In salt-glazing pottery, unglazed pieces are placed in the kiln and heated to a very high temperature. Salt is then thrown into the hot kiln. The salt     fumes throughout the kiln interior, and combines with the silica in the clay pottery to form a natural glaze on all the pots.    
   
These pieces are handmade and have natural variation to them - no two pieces are alike. Salt glazed pottery is made to be used every day; it’s extremely     durable and lasts decades. During extreme cold, stoneware should be brought indoors or placed in sheltered area.    
We have several pieces that date back to the 19th century!
