Ceramic goods made by human hands in Tempe, Arizona

  • Affordable

    Compared to dishes from a big box store, these are obscenely expensive. But for handmade ceramics, these prices are hard to beat.

  • Beautiful

    The heft and texture of hand-crafted stoneware can't be replicated. These dishes feel great at the dinner table and look spectacular in food photos.

  • Unique

    Each piece has its own character, from the irregularities in the object to the speckled glaze and the sponge marks underneath.

The New Fine China

Your grandma might have had some really spectacular ornate porcelain, but it probably got used once a year and stored in a high-security display cabinet. Stoneware makes a different statement with its heft and texture while remaining durable enough for kitchen cabinets and dishwashers. Now you can use your nicest dinnerware every day.

Functional Art

Barkley ceramics are hand-made in Arizona out of cream-colored stoneware clay that's been heated over 1800° F, dipped in a speckled glaze, then fired one last time at an even higher temperature to make them waterproof and food safe.
