Material

During this ‘grand feu’ firing at 2850F, the clays that make up its refined body become vitrified (the state at which the china and glaze melts and fuses together to form non-porous ware) and allows stoneware to reach the status of ‘noble ceramic”.
We could list all the reasons why stoneware gets this distinction but this would be long but it is unique to Jars. It is certainly the most resistant and the most natural ceramic material.
Thanks to this high fire and vitrification process stoneware recalls how rock was formed some millions of years ago with the trilogy of “earth, water and fire”.
As if it was a living thing stoneware comes from nature and is returned to it.
