During outings with our family, we collect leaves. The majority of the leaves are gathered from the Teton-Wind River and Wyoming Range areas,. We also gather leaves from the greater Yellowstone eco-system, and a few lower elevations in the area., including our farm along the Clarks Fork River in Montana, where such leaves as elm and maple are collected. You may notice imperfections in some of the leaves, we use them as they appear in nature.
Care of Pottery Our pottery is safe for the oven, microwave, and dishwasher use. As with any stoneware; avoid extreme thermal shock (i.e. do not use on oven burner or take from refrigerator to preheated oven.)
The white stoneware serves as the base for the leaf to be pressed into and then color is applied around it. The glaze has been formulated to fit the stoneware perfectly, resulting in exceptional pottery that bakes evenly, cleans up easily, and is chip resistant. It's durability is tested daily at the Guenthner's house.
