Melodies from Toryen "so dang cute"

This is our grandson Toryen Wayne Haynes. He was busy to a musical number for all the people in our booth. He was having such fun with two honey sticks banging on our pottery. I was having fun as well watching all the peoples faces as he produces his melodic tones. Well done Toryen a great show of how well our pottery stands up to all situations. To whom it may concern we will be at the Tooele rendezvous at the weekend of the 27Th of September.

How to use a Chicken Roaster

Begin by putting 1/2 inch of water in the outside bowl. Put water and other seasonings that you wish into the center cup. Take the neck skin and pull if over the hole to the main cavity. Tuck the skin over the top to hold in the moisture and flavor.
2nd Do NOT preheat your oven. Stick your Chicken in the oven on 350' for 2 1/2 hours (More or less time as your oven requires). Start checking on your chicken at about 2 hours the first couple times you make it.
3rd Take it out and enjoy. Remember that stoneware stays hot. Be careful when you pick up your roaster even if it has been out of your oven for time, it holds heat very well.


These can be used for Hot or cold. You can put anything in them from Kool-aid to Gravy and Water to Ice tea.

Bowl Sets

Bowl sets can be put together anyway you want. You can get all five or the 3 small or any of them put into a set. Price's very with size's.

How It's Made

The 1st step to the pottery is Throwing. Bud makes EVERYTHING by hand and then paints it on the wheel. Everything is a one of a kind. Some pieces may look the same, but no 2 pieces are the same.

The 2nd step is Drying. We set it outside in the sun on good days and it takes about 2 days to dry with the glazing process. (Glaze is the glass that is put over the top of the paint)

The 3rd step is Fireing. The pottery is fired at 2300 degrees. After it is fired, it is ready to use. It can be put in your microwave, dishwasher, and oven. The paint will never fade or discolor. What you buy is what you get.
