Westerwald:
Stoneware from Westerwald has a distinctive look that combines gray clay and a cobalt blue glaze with finely carved, intricate and precise decorative elements - such as the pitchers mask spout, large curling leaf shapes and sculpted youthful Bacchus head (with grapes twined in his hair) at center front. Each piece was hand-formed, carved and painted, then wood fired for 48 hours. Salt was thrown onto the piece during the last few hours, to create the shiny finish.
