Bristol High Jar by Burley Clay
Old World Style and Craftsmanship
When settlers moved into Southeastern Ohio during the early 1800’s, they found vast deposits of stoneware clay and coal. This abundant supply of clay and fuel attracted many potters to the area, where they settled to farm and make pottery.
During the Ohio winters, which were both damp and cold, the farmers were unable to make pottery. When spring came, about the same time the bluebirds returned to the area, they would start their potteries back up. Collectively, these small potteries became known as Bluebird Potteries and much of what they produced is known as Bluebird Ware. Burley Clay Products still creates their pottery in much the same way and the Bristol Collection is representative of the famed Bluebird Ware.

About Burley Clay:
Burley Clay utilizes several different production methods to produce our stoneware. From high-tech hydraulic and ram presses to the craftsmanship required in jiggering and casting, our production methods differ significantly but share certain features – an emphasis on quality, efficiency, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Certain production methods require thicker, more solid clay, while others demand a thinner, more liquid consistency. Our processes carefully clean and mix the clay blend at a perfect consistency specific to each production method. Burley Clay Products is proud to offer beautiful, American-made products.
