Every item is made from stoneware and porcelainous clays which are fired to 1280 degrees in my electric kiln. Most pieces are thrown individually on the pottery wheel, decorated and then glazed with glazes which I make myself. You can enjoy their use for a long time if handled with care.(Can be washed in a dishwasher). Please get in contact if you want a special piece made but it can take few weeks from start to finish.
