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.
