Not all stoneware is created equally. In fcat there is not a standard, universal definition of stoneware and the word is frequently misused to describe other ceramic products. At our factories in Portugal, ancient skills of modelling and decorating are combined with modern technology in a special process that produces high-quality fine stoneware products capable of withstanding everyday use over many years. Manufactured in a single firing system heated up to 1180 ºC our stoneware is very strong and durable. Its glazed surface is fully vitrified which gives it high resistance to both thermal and mechanical shocks.
