This large Stoneware jug with its octagonal format is extremely versatile. Use it to serve water, fruit juice or as a rustic dispenser for wine at a family lunch, or kitchen supper, or fill it with mulled wine in the winter, whatever season, it will look just right.
The Stoneware is made by a family-owned firm in Portugal, established over a century ago. The company has evolved, but many traditional techniques and the quality have endured. The fluid designs of the Stoneware ensure each piece is easy to use and lovely to hold. The subtle glazes, with gentle variations in shade, are inspired by the natural colours in the Portuguese landscape – earth, sea and sky.
Stoneware has been valued for centuries. Prior to the invention of porcelain, the Chinese, famed for their ceramics, mainly produced stoneware. On a basic level, it is clay fired at a higher temperature than earlier earthenware, making it non-porous. The robust nature of modern Stoneware means that it is less susceptible to chipping and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
