Artisans put in a lifetime of work into making utilitarian objects.  I hope you will treasure the items as much as you enjoy using them. Here are some tips on using and caring for hand-made pottery:
  • Before first use, immerse the earthenware into water.  This will prevent grease or sauce from penetrating into the porous surface.

  • After each use, wash with mild detergent to remove any stain or dirt.  Leave it in the shade and air-dry completely before storage.  If left on the self while moist, black visible mold might grow on unglazed surface or where there are hairline cracks.

  • Visible cracks on glazed surface is a common property of pottery.  Some ceramists use crackle glaze to intentionally create cracks for its aesthetics.  In Japanese pottery culture, cracks on glaze are embraced as representation of the impermanence, and marks of extended ownership.

  • Unless stated, do not use in microwave oven or dishwasher. 

  • Only certain clay can be used over direct flame or stove.  Please read instruction before use.

Give it a lot of love and it will last you a lifetime.
