Background

One story about early salt glaze In America is that the salt glaze technique was discovered in about 1680 by chance. An earthen vessel filled with brine to cure salt pork was placed on the fire for cooking. The person watching the fire left and forgot about it. The brine boiled over, the pot became red hot, and the sides of the pot were salt glazed. A local potter heard about the accident, utilized the discovery, and the salt glaze technique was born.
