Pottery Care Instructions

All my handmade pottery is suitable for the dishwasher. However please be aware that the dishwasher can dull the glaze finish over time so it’s good to hand wash at least some of the time to keep your pottery looking its best.

I don’t recommend using your handmade pottery in the microwave.

My pottery is oven safe. However, as with all ceramics avoid thermal shock by not exposing your pottery to rapid temperature changes. Never put a cold pot in a hot oven – always place pottery into a cold oven, then bring up to temperature. DO NOT PRE-HEAT OVEN. Avoid sudden temperature changes; thermal shock can cause pottery to crack or break. Never use stoneware on a stovetop or open flame.
