Pottery - Jen Baumeister

            Jen Baumeister is a ceramiicist who works mostly in stoneware to produce functional pottery. In addition to mugs and plates with original designs, she makes innovative pieces that fulfill essential kitchen functions. She works out of her Hudson studio and sells her pieces directly and online.

            Mapleleaf Pottery, 450.458.4849;, Shop

            Check out the microwave egg cookers and bacon cookers below on Jen’s website or on her Etsy online store through the above links. There are also a practical egg separator, juicers, bowls, a stopperless salt shaker and a butter keeper.

            Jen specializes in items that are useful around the kitchen and has some innovative pieces that work better than standard conventional items. She works in stoneware because the material is especially durable and resists chipping better than earthenware.

            Handmade pottery is mostly either earthenware or stoneware. Where earthen ware is fired clay that remains porous and more easily damaged, stoneware is fired to a higher temperature and becomes vitreous, resisting damage and chipping.

            Jen’s stoneware is designed to be utilitarian and you can place it in your microwave, oven and dishwasher. It is not suitable for cooking on a stove.

            You can buy pieces from the Etsy store or place orders for gift certificates and custom pieces on the website which also has contact information.
