14th Century Beer Stein
Available at: Uncommongoods.com
These steins drink deeply from the traditions of Medieval Europe. Stephanie Theado spent her childhood summers with her grandmother in France, where her family had lived for centuries, and remembers the comfortable forms, the texture, the heft of the everyday stoneware that filled the kitchen--so similar to the ancient shards that could be found in the fields outside. Now a master potter, Stephanie carries that history with her, crafting each two-pint mug individually on the wheel in her studio.
