Available by SPECIAL ORDER (order below.) This is our very rustic, very plain pattern, called "Natural." It's even plainer than our "Memorial" pattern. It has been designed specifically for churches and dramatic arts groups to use in the portrayal of Jesus' last supper. Our objective was to come as close as possible to what we imagine was used during that event - simple, ordinary cups and plates, and perhaps a pitcher. This was not an elegant meal, but a common sharing of bread and wine among friends in a private home.

Some things to expect when ordering the "Natural" style of our pottery:

  • Glazed minimally (for safe use) in a slightly mottled dark brown on inside and rim of cup and flagon.

  • Unpredictable and irregular shades of brown in the blended stoneware clays which are used to produce the ware (notice the differences in picture above.)

  • Well-crafted, but with color variations from piece to piece, even within a group of pieces ordered together.

  • Special order time is usually six weeks for small orders, similar to other special-order items (see tempcomm.htm) and longer when ordering full sets for Lent season or dramatic presentations. Summer is the best time to order large numbers for the following Lenten season.

  • The Chalice will contain approximately 10 to 12 oz. and is about 7 1/2" high. Paten is approximately 9" in diameter. The Flagon holds approximately one quart liquid.

  • NO carved cross on the chalice available in this style.
