    General Information


    The Westerwald is world-famous for its high-quality clay deposits. We obtain our stock pots for the kitchen from a local pottery. The family business in Ransbach-Baumbach can now look back on more than 150 years of tradition in its craft. And while the shapes of the pots may be familiar and time-honored - you will only find the glossy, shimmering shade of green in the glaze in our designs.

    Keeping Butter Fresh the Way the French Do.

    The principle is simple. The butter is placed in the cylinder shaped upper part of this stoneware. A little bit of salted water is poured into the bottom part. When the upper part is slipped into the lower, the water forces the air from the clay pot. The butter stays fresh, always cool, and, unlike storing it rock hard in the refrigerator, the butter can still be spread. You can serve the butter from the upper part of the pot.

    Made From Westerwald Clay. Stoneware from Ransbach-Baumbach.

    The butter dish is made from real Westerwald; the bottom part is stamped, the upper part is poured into a mould. The clay is dried, painted with a bright green, glazed and glost fired at 1,250 °C. The densely sintered clay has no pores and is water tight, making it easy to clean. The shock-resistant ceramic has strong edges.

    Keep butter fresh according to French custom.

    The principle is simple. Butter is placed in the cylindrical upper part and a little salted water in the lower part. If one is then put into the other, the air escapes from the storage container due to the displacement of water. The butter cannot oxidize, remains fresh, is always cooled by water and, unlike most butter stored in the refrigerator, is spreadable. In the upper part, the butter can also be served at the table.

    The lower part of the butter dish is stamped out of genuine Westerwald clay in the pottery in Ransbach-Baumbach, and the upper part is cast in molds. Both parts receive a bright green glaze and are fired at 1,250 °C until smooth.

    Made of Westerwald clay. Pots for bread and butter. And for vegetables

    The pottery where these pots are made is located in Ransbach-Baumbach, in the Vorderer Westerwald, where the highest-quality clay deposits in Europe are found. The family business can look back on 150 years of tradition in working with clay - here it is genuine Westerwald clay, sought after for its light coloration and fine plasticity. Densely sintered, fired and glazed, it is non-porous and waterproof, so it is easy to clean, yet impact-resistant and edge-stable.
