Drink Up!

These steins drink deeply from the traditions of Medieval Europe. Stephanie Theado spent her childhood summers with her grandmother in France, where her family had lived for centuries, and remembers the comfortable forms, the texture, the heft of the everyday stoneware that filled the kitchen--so similar to the ancient shards that could be found in the fields outside.

Now a master potter, Stephanie carries that history with her, crafting each two-pint mug individually on the wheel in her studio. The unique detailing of the glaze is achieved through soda firing--a modern take on an ancient technique, where soda ash is introduced into the hot kiln. The powder vaporizes and is carried by the heat currents, creating a beautiful, organically stippled finish wherever it touches. The contours of the handle are designed for comfort and usability, while the solid ceramic material helps to keep your brew of choice hot or cold. Handmade in Bovina, New York.

New York

Along the Little Delaware River, in Bovina, New York you will find Stephanie Theado's pottery studio nestled among a handful of century old houses.

For inspiration, Stephanie draws on her memory of the pottery her grandmother used when she spent her summers in France. Drawing on her childhood memories has allowed her to design several collections of functional tableware. Her pottery is simple, quiet and centering, helping to ground an over stimulated world.
Stephanie only produces high fired stoneware pots, which will withstand heavy use for many years. She fires her pieces once, which cuts her fuel consumption by a third. She uses well water in her manufacturing process and never discards waste into the ground water. With being sustainable, her designs inspire a love of the natural world and an appreciation for locally made, environmentally friendly products.

      Comments about UncommonGoods 14th Century Beer Stein:

      Bought two of these for my family's Christmas celebration. One for myself and one for my brother. I was impressed with the size and weight of the steins! Looked like the stein I am taking didn't get complete coverage with glaze on the outside, but I'll go with it and see how it holds up. The one I am giving my brother has quite a bit more color variation and complete glaze coverage. This is not a complaint, just an observation... it's going to happen when they are hand made. I couldn't quite wait to try mine out on Christmas with my brother so I washed it quick and filled it up with 2 - 12 oz bottles of beer. Seemed to be a perfect fit with enough room for a good head. Can't wait to fill them up again during our family Christmas party!

            they have a sheen to them that is really beautiful. they are plenty big for more than a pint and are much more attractive than a bottle or glass.
