As you follow our story, you know that Sunset Hill Stoneware has taken extraordinary efforts to provide a safe workplace for our employees – and a safe product line for our customers.


Long-term exposure to inhaling clay dust and working in a damp environment can lead to serious health issues. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in clean air filtration and circulation units and monitor our facility with computer-controlled air and heating systems for employee comfort and safety.

We could say we care for our employees, in the same way customers treasure our stoneware. Our artistry is not intended for shelf decoration; it’s designed to be functional in your office and home – and shared with those you love.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created guidelines on the safety and labeling of pottery. While we are not required by law to adhere to FDA recommendations, we make sure our products are analyzed to meet their standards. Our clay materials (made in America!) are certified and our glazed products have been tested by an independent analytical laboratory – to ensure lead and cadmium metals meet FDA and California Proposition 65 compliancy standards.

We’re proud to be recognized as a ‘Product Safety Aware' company by the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), Pathway to Confidence initiative. Meeting the evolving product safety compliance expectations of the industry requires regulatory knowledge and an ongoing company commitment.

While not all American-made or imported stoneware is safe, our customers can be assured that Sunset Hill Stoneware is 100% lead free and cadmium free, making it food safe and perfect for everyday use.

We will continue to actively engage in a culture that prioritizes and commits to product safety – in your home – and for the good of our employees.

Until next time.  Tom
