The pottery is crafted of stoneware clay fired up to 2,200 degrees. Wheel thrown or hand built, the ceramics are created using non-toxic, food-safe glazes. The pottery is dishwasher safe, microwave safe and oven-proof (when put in the oven during pre-heating). Variations reflect the singular character of each piece.
