What's the difference between using Flameware and Stoneware?
Our Clay Coyote Flameware can be used over direct heat (e.g. a stovetop or grill). We only offer Clay Coyote Flameware in one color Coyote Gray. Our Clay Coyote Stoneware is great for baking. It can get hot, but it doesn’t like to change temperature quickly. So its a good practice to put it in the oven and let it come up to temperature during the preheat. Both Clay Coyote Flameware and Clay Coyote Stoneware are microwave and dishwasher safe. They’re all lead and nickle free. And great alternatives to metal for your kitchen. They say cooking is an art, we make art you can cook with.

Do you take special orders?
It depends, if you have something specific that you’re looking for please contact us and we’ll ask the potters if they can do it. They have their own styles and techniques. Please send an email to [email protected].
Do you offer gift certificates?
Youbetcha, we have gift certificates for sale online and in the Gallery and we continue to honor all gift certificates sold since we opened the Gallery in 2002. So look in the back of your wallet or junk drawer, you might find an oldie but goodie gem. Clay Coyote gift certificates are not accepted at off-site events like MN Pottery Festival or Garlic Festival.
Will my punch card still be honored?
No, we discontinued punch cards as of December 31, 2016.
