If you've been searching for totally unique pottery products made in the USA, a visit to the Rowe Pottery Works' website at www.rowepottery.com should help you find what you're looking for. The variety of what you will find there is amazing and almost overwhelming since there is so much to see, and variety is a true asset with American-made goods like these becoming harder and harder to find.
These artisan crafted products are available in many different forms from useful accents for your kitchen including crocks, jars, jugs, pitchers, mixing and serving bowls, wine coolers, dispensers, and indigo dinnerware. And since each piece is handmade by a small company right here in America, you'll avoid the cookie-cutter designs of larger corporations since the size and the shape of each piece will vary depending on the influence of the American craftsman who creates your choice, which is guaranteed to be oven, dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each piece is available for customizing and personalizing with many patterns including heart, star, pinewood, tea berry and animal patterns. Or you can simply have your family name or other special information permanently added to your creation. Rowe Pottery also offers ironware reminiscent of the colonial days in the form of pot racks, plate racks, crock stands, courting candles and pie stands.
The uniqueness doesn't end with just useful and attractive kitchen accents either. Most patriotic consumers know it's extremely difficult to find lamps made in the USA, so Rowe Pottery offers lamps you simply won't find anywhere else. You'll find traditional table lamps at www.rowepottery.com as well as hurricane lamps that come with glass chimneys and an adjustable wick that uses standard lamp oil, which I think would be more-suited for me personally since I live in the recently hurricane-devastated state of Florida.
You'll want to keep going back to Rowe Pottery's website frequently since new pieces and special designs are released each month. And you'll definitely want to visit www.rowepottery.com around Christmas-time to look at their Christmas collection which currently includes an attractive Cornerstone Village, old world Santas, star ornaments, centerpieces and taper holders, girl and boy carolers, and candle holders. Any of the Rowe Pottery creations can be finished with Christmas accents and designs too.
Rowe Pottery is celebrating their 30th year in 2005 and their company store in Cambridge, Wisconsin has always been a popular travel destination. Cambridge was even voted "the most-friendly small town" by Wisconsin Trails magazine.
I feel very fortunate to have discovered this company and website, not just for what I might like to order in the future to accent my own family's home, but also because I can spread the word to consumers who want to buy American and help this country prosper by supporting true American craftsmen that have an affection both for what America used to be and can be again.
