About Gourd Impressions Pottery:

In 2000 Gourd Place artist and co-owner Priscilla Wilson invented a unique method of using gourd molds for slip-casting pottery. We received our U.S. Utility Patent in 2006. You should know that the veins and textures from inside the gourds that give our pottery its unique appearance also make it vulnerable to slight warping when fired! Thus there will be minor variations in the shapes of the individual pieces making them less stack-able than factory made dishes.

Gourd Impressions pottery is made from stoneware. This means that it is fired to almost 2300 degrees, making it microwave/oven/dishwasher safe. All glazes are food safe and contain no lead. As with any handmade pottery, there will be variations in the glaze inside and the underglaze that is applied to the outside of the dishes.

Items are pictured below showing both the inside and the outside of the piece so that you may see how the gourd textures are highlighted for each glaze. Measurements are approximate; these are given in terms of diameter for pieces that are more or less round and in terms of width, referring to widest dimension, if their shapes are more oblong. If the designation diameter with an asterisk is used, this means the piece may be round or warp to a more oval shape.
