The Humble Stoneware Crock


The stoneware crock became a houseware staple around 1720 in the North East United States, typically bearing a salt glaze and cobalt oxide blue stamps of the potters who made them. They’re incredibly sturdy, relatively inexpensive and simple in execution.

The wide mouth and base make the 1 gallon crock perfect for kitchen utensil storage and it’s heavy enough that I don’t have to worry about it tipping over.
