Stoneware was discovered more than 2300 years ago in China, and is a sedimentary rock that is the result of the breakdown of various rocks and minerals, composed essentially of quartz and feldspar. At European level, Stoneware began to be used in Germany at the end of sec. XIV, having been produced and marketed on a large scale throughout Europe.
Internationally, stoneware is increasingly fashionable, gaining ground on its relatives, namely porcelain.
