FAQ's on Lead-Free Pottery

Q. Why is “Lead free” important?
A. Lead free, high fire glazes are exclusively used to insure safety in our pieces. This is “utile” (useable) pottery. It is safe to cook in and eat from each piece.

Q. What is meant by “hand crafted”?
A. Each piece is thrown on a Potter’s Wheel or, “built” using slabs of clay and/or appliques.

Q. Why, “One of a kind”?
A. Since a person (not a machine) makes each piece exact duplications do not happen. Some pieces are similar in make-up and are parts of sets. Glazes and other treatments are applied with the individuality of the piece always in mind.

Q. Can I really cook in this?
A. Yes! The heat used to finish-fire each piece is in excess of 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit. Most ovens, used in food preparation, do not heat above 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Since there is no lead or metal in the glaze, it is also safe to use your pottery in the microwave oven.

Q. Can I freeze food in my pottery?
A. Although freezing will not effect the quality of the food, it is NOT recommended. Why? Cold temperatures make pottery more susceptible to breakage. If dropped (especially when very cold) expect your piece to shatter.
