Liturgical Ware

All of our liturgical vessels are high fire stoneware. For a more detailed view, click on any image. We are pleased to offer you our collection of stoneware vessels for liturgical use. Our most requested items are Chalice and Paten sets, Ciborium, cruet sets, and lavabo bowls for use in the weekly Eucharist. We have also created pitcher and bowl sets for the Maundy Thursday washing of the feet, Altar Candle Holders, and bowls and porcelain shells for Baptismal use. Our travel size communion ware set can be customized to suit your needs.

Alter Set

Our chalice is 7" inches tall with a 16 oz capacity, the paten 8" diameter. Since each piece is hand crafted there is some variation in size. Each piece is available individually as well.

We offer two stem styles for the Chalice, the "traditional" with a knop mid-stem and the "contemporary" with its more simple style.

We can welcome special orders and custom work. All of our pottery is available in any of our regular glaze colors.
