The other day I had a request for just the sugar bowl from a sugar bowl and carafe creamer set. I have no idea why I didn`t think of it before. The problem with breaking up a set, besides being hard to do, is that the 3 pieces ie; carafe, bowl and lid are glazed and fired at the same time in the same kiln. Trying to match a remaining piece after a set is broken, is near impossible. If you see an individual piece that you particularly like and would like to have a set, then a set will need to be made with that glaze and fired together for a match.
To solve this one piece problem I have started making individual sugar jars and carafe creamers. All of my stoneware is high fired and dishwasher, food, microwave safe. I use only lead free glazes (unlike some other countries). My work can be seen at www.Etsy.com/shop/desertnova. Here are a couple of fresh out of the kiln singles.
