Statement: Wood Stone specialty cooking equipment and stone hearth ovens are made in the USA. Since 1990, we’ve been building our equipment in Bellingham, Washington. Our Founders, Keith Carpenter and Harry Hegarty, both lived in and loved Whatcom County and started this 21-year-old endeavor with a few close friends. These friends built stone hearth ovens unlike any others on the planet; Unlike the traditional imported ovens, they use modern materials formulated specifically for the application of stone hearth cooking. This refractory is cast in molds to make very strong monolithic floors and monolithic domes. The result is hand-crafted ovens that are more reliable and predictable than ovens made with clay tiles or bricks (or “cotto refrattario”).
