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.

    Hubby loves his birthday gift- it's the perfect beer stein! It holds 2 standard 12 ounce beers at a time and keeps them colder for much longer than a pint glass.

            We love hand-made ceramics and these steins did not disappoint. They are beautifully crafted. They will primarily be displayed in our home. The steins arrived in excellent condition. I ordered two. They were wrapped individually in bubble wrap, then each in its own box with packing peanuts. Both of those boxes were placed in another box and shipped. I was impressed with the care taken with my order.

                    This is a great mug -- large capacity; handle doesn't get hot; nice oversized flat bottom so it won't tip over when being carried on a tray; and I can watch TV at night without getting up every few seconds to refill my cup. Love it!
