Flameware Thermal Shock Test Video

Marrowstone Pottery is nestled in the woods on beautiful Marrowstone Island.  Established in 2003 by George (Tsitsas) and Helena (Eleni) the pottery now specializes in Flameware or Stove Top Pottery under the trademark name, Furnoware ®.  All of our Flameware pottery is handmade at our studio and comes with a "Guarantee" to be free of material defects and not to break under normal stove top and oven temperature use.

"Furnoware" is a registered trademark name of Marrowstone Pottery.  "Furnoware by Tsitsas" is a new and improved line of Flameware Pottery produced at Marrowstone Pottery and sold exclusively by Hestia Productions, LLC.  Furnoware Pottery can go straight from the freezer into a hot oven or on the stove top burner without any worries of breakage.  Our Flameware Pottery has been scientifically designed and tested to withstand extreme thermal shock conditions and is the only Flameware Pottery sold on the market today that has published its proven test results in the May 2011 issue, (volume 32), of Ceramics Technical Journal.  You can read the published version of the article by clicking on the following link:   A Discussion of Flameware.

Our Sales Gallery is located next to the studio and displays work produced by the artists.  This website does not display all of the work that is available for sale.  Our Studio and Gallery are available for touring and sales most days of the week but it is always a good idea to call ahead to make sure that we are in.

Classes in Pottery on the Wheel and Hand Building are also available for all skill levels.  For further information please call the number below or send us an email.

Flameware (Furnoware) / Stove Top Series

Our Flameware (Furnoware) / Stove Top Pottery Series incorporates the beauty of high fired pottery design with a scientifically formulated, flame resistant clay body and durable craze resistant glazes that have been scientifically matched for stove top and oven cooking.   No other type of pottery to my knowledge can make that claim.  The Furnoware Pottery ®Series has been designed for the cooking connoisseur who understands the importance of preserving the flavors of the ingredients through the use of high fire clay pottery that also enhances the appearance of the prepared dish for serving directly to the table.  Each piece is hand crafted to order and thus contains its own special characteristics.

Designer Selection Stoneware Pottery Series

Our Designer Selection Stoneware Pottery Series has been created for the discriminating client in search of a unique artistically designed item for that special location within their environment that will capture the visual focus and enhance the spatial appearance.   Each piece has been custom designed and hand crafted using the potters wheel and hand building techniques and is "one of a kind."

Custom Designed Hand Made Tiles & Murals

All of our Custom Designed Hand Made Tiles & Murals are hand crafted by Eleni at our Marrowstone Pottery Studio. Inspiration for her work comes from her experiences living in the American Southwest and her travels to Greece and Italy and from flowers in her garden. Commissions for custom installations are always welcome. Eleni can be contacted at the number below or at marrowstonepots@waypoint.com.
