2020 Historical 1 Gallon Ovoid Crock

In stock



History on the 1 Gallon Ovoid Crock

Crocks were essential in homes for food storage, canning and fermenting before refrigeration. The ovoid crock takes on a slightly different shape from the traditional straight sided crock. The decoration that adorns this piece is part of the Abby Aldrich collection that Rowe Pottery introduced in the 1990’s. This design is an adaptation from the late 1920’s collection of her Williamsburg folk art.

Due to the handcrafted quality of our pottery, each piece will vary slightly from the other making each one unique. All Rowe Pottery is handcrafted by an artisan in Cambridge, Wisconsin. 

About 2020 Historical Collection

This year as part of our ongoing celebration of 45 years we are looking back on our own history and bringing back beautiful forms that will always remain functional pieces in the everyday home.

Our historical collection has primarily always been created in our Ash Glaze. Our Ash Glaze is an adaptation of pottery fired in the 1800’s in traditional wood burning kilns. When pottery was fired in a wood burning kiln ashes and other debris adhered to the pots giving them rustic coloration and earthy texture. Our pieces today replicate this look and each piece is unique in how the ash glaze presents itself during firing.

Due to the handmade quality of our pottery, slight variations in glazing, and design of pieces is expected.
