Description

This redware tankard is handcrafted individually by the skilled artisans of Steinhagen Pottery. Popular in early America, redware is an earthenware clay body with a high iron content. The iron is not evident in the clay when it is workable or when it dries – at those times it is a light gray. But in the heat of the kiln, the clay takes on its characteristic rusty iron color. Since redware clays are widely distributed in natural deposits around the world, it has been the clay most readily available to traditional potters for millennia. It is similar to the type of clay used to make terracotta clay flowerpots and red bricks.
