- PORCELAIN/STONEWARE/GLAZES/FOOD SAFETY
Since each piece is formed and glazed by hand you may find slight imperfections. These are intentional and are part of the character of the individual piece. All of our pieces are glazed with lead free, food-safe glazes. In some cases we recommend using a piece only for decorative use, not for food. These pieces are called "Decorative" pieces and a description is given on why it is not recommended for food.
- RECOMMENDED CARE
All of our ceramics are dishwasher safe, unless otherwise noted. I prefer to hand wash mine. Where there is highly textured porcelain or stoneware I would recommend taking a fine brush and brushing those areas to make sure no food is left behind. On many of our pieces the rims and bottoms are unglazed. Unglazed clay will retain moisture so it is best to make sure they are thoroughly dried before setting on wooden furniture.
