Stoneware
SUNSET HILL STONEWARE
Pat Bowser
800-509-4662
We are a production pottery company located in Wisconsin. Our Signature Stoneware™ mugs are hand thrown by artisan potters. We press custom artwork into permanent 3-dimensional clay medallions, hand apply it to pottery and then high-fire it to last a lifetime. The end result is attractive, functional and uniquely yours. Perfect for serving at breakfast, in guest rooms and reselling for a profit!

When you work with Sunset Hill you are working with people who share your values. Father and son owners, Duane and Tom Dunsirn, have redefined the pottery industry by placing worker safety and environmental responsibility at the forefront of daily operations. Our business depends on the earth’s natural resources of clay, water and heat, so it’s natural that we would be protective of our environmental footprint – and employee’s long-term health.

Gone are the days of pottery dust, sharp knives and damp dark humid conditions. The Dunsirn’s have embraced the beauty of artisan-thrown pottery with the desire to work smarter. Their state-of-the-art, productivity-driven facility can simply be called ‘pottery heaven’.

SHS ADVANTAGE

You gain the SHS Difference and a team of creative mindsets to build a better mug for your brand. We build brand equity by helping customers associate their brand with a quality-made product – validating their high-level of standards, sense of values and love for America.

Affordable Art
Our artisan team hand throws each piece starting from an earthy clump of clay. We’ve optimized our processes and created internal efficiencies to limit the number of times we touch each piece – driving down your cost for handmade beauty and craftsmanship.

Built-In Product Safety
Customers select our stunning stoneware for our artistry and functionality. Our pieces are independently tested to ensure our pieces meet stringent FDA and California Proposition 65 compliancy standards – and our standards.
