TRADITIONAL, UTILITARIAN STONEWARE

Luck's Ware pottery is traditional, lead-free utilitarian stoneware fired in a kiln to a temperature of 2200° F.  It is suitable for use in conventional or microwave ovens and is dishwasher safe.  This pottery is as visually appealing as it is functional, with its wide array of colorful glazes and graceful forms. 

WOOD-FIRED, SALT-GLAZED POTTERY

Luck's Ware salt-glazed pottery is fired in a groundhog kiln built in 2003 by Sid, son Matt, apprentice Caroline Smith and a host of volunteers.  Bricks from the kilns of Sid's father and grandfather were used in the construction.  Pottery is fired with wood over a period of about 15 hours, culminating in salt being introduced about an hour before the end of the firing.

...AND A LITTLE WHIMSEY, TOO!

Face jugs, ugly jugs - whatever you want to call them.  Sid's whimsical jugs are popular with customers at Luck's Ware.  The "crawdad slip" glaze shown here was formulated by Sid.  The "mud" for the slip was found in a nearby creek when Sid's young sons were catching crawdads.
