Thank you for viewing our collection of stoneware communion pottery by Debra Ocepek. All the vessels are made individually on the potter's wheel in Akron, Ohio, USA. Our ministry is to provide simple, affordable vessels for the Lord's Supper service. Churches have many demands on their resources and very important work on which to spend their precious funds; therefore, we do everything possible to keep our prices low. Our communion pottery is made for use in the church worship service (congregational size sets), for home or visitation use (travel size), as well as for retreats, weddings, and gifts for clergy. Many find these wheel-thrown stoneware communion sets to be ideal for ordination, seminary graduation, or first communion gifts as well.
Communionware is the only pottery we make these days, though in the past we made more traditional pieces such as mugs, vases, etc. We have found our calling, and we are trying to provide an ecumenical selection of pottery because we believe Communion to be a very unifying element of the Christian faith. We are honored to be a part of the celebration of Holy Communion through the work of our hands in producing the pottery for Jesus to use at suppertime.
