Product Guide

Dishwasher vs. Handwashing: Handwashing is recommended for all our pottery items. Use a mild, non-abrasive detergent and a soft sponge or cloth. Dishwasher use may expose your pottery to harsh conditions, potentially affecting glazes and finishes. Delicate pieces, in particular, should be hand-washed to ensure their longevity.

Avoid Abrasive Cleaners: Harsh or abrasive cleaners can damage the glazes and finishes of your pottery. Go for mild, non-abrasive detergents. For stubborn stains, soak the pottery in warm, soapy water and gently scrub with a soft brush or cloth.

Extreme Temperatures: Pottery is sensitive to extreme temperatures. Avoid sudden changes from hot to cold or vice versa, as this can lead to thermal shock and potentially cause cracks. 

Gentle Handling: When handling personalized or customized items, try to avoid putting excessive stress on attached elements. Lift items carefully and support any extended or delicate parts.

Gentle Cleaning: When cleaning items with engraved or painted elements, use a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid harsh scrubbing, as it may compromise the details. Pat dry with a soft towel to prevent water spots.

Color and Appearance: Handmade pottery may undergo natural changes in color or appearance over time. This is a normal part of the aging process and adds to the uniqueness of each piece. 

Display Considerations: Display your pottery in locations where it is shielded from direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to sunlight may cause fading, particularly for items with vibrant glazes. Rotate your display periodically to ensure even exposure.

General Tips

Avoid Sharp Objects: Keep sharp objects away from your pottery to prevent scratches or chips. If stacking items, use soft padding between them.

Use Felt Pads: Place felt pads on the bottom of pottery items to protect surfaces from scratches. This is especially important for items displayed on delicate or easily scratched surfaces.
