About Saltglaze Stoneware
Salt glaze Stoneware is pottery with a translucent glaze that has a slight orange-peel texture. The salt glaze is formed by throwing salt into the kiln during the firing process. The salt glaze can be colourless or can be coloured in various shades.
In the 1800's Lambeth in London became a centre for the production of salt glazed stoneware, particularly after the formation of Doulton and Watts Pottery, which was later renamed to The Royal Doulton Company
