Schumaker Pottery is infused with animation and strength the moment it is pulled from the clay. As one holds a piece of hand thrown pottery, human touch can be felt in the thumb hold of a handle or the lines of a bowl. Both stoneware and porcelain are functional and food safe. Every piece is oven and microwave safe, dishwasher safe, lead free, durable and beautiful.
Each piece is handled at least six times. The clay is kneaded, thrown, trimmed, bisque fired, glazed and finally glaze fired. The life cycle of a pot is about 6 weeks.
Stoneware and porcelain are fired at high temperatures, above 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Both are nonporous. When you fire clay, you are essentially speeding up the geological process and creating non-permeable stone!
