Support American Companies & Artists

I discovered a truly American company recently, and I found their company's story interesting.
The company is Hartstone Pottery, located in Zanesville Ohio. All their products are lead free. Their baking stones are the only kind that are microwave, oven and soap and dishwasher safe.

If you've never baked on a stone, you should try one. They are the best for nice, even cooking of cookies, pizzas, and other baked goods - especially with Christmas coming up and all the cookie baking that we do! I used to think I was a lousy baker - it turned out it was my baking pans that were the problem.

Another reason to buy mugs, pet bowls, stoneware, bakeware and more from Hartstone is that you will be helping real American families, the folks who work at Hartstone - who are back at work after their factory was dealt a blow - Starbucks sent their mug orders overseas.

Chip Royer, the VP of Marketing and Development for Harstone, told me,

"Hartstone is an American treasure. We got our start as an art pottery, making mugs for Starbucks Coffee. When Starbucks sent the work overseas we faced a difficult struggle. Today we're back open, hand-making the finest American art pottery from scratch."

If you don't care for baking, check out their pet bowls and their items for sports fans.
