General Information And Care

All our ceramics are hand-made with love in our studio in Bali, Indonesia.

Ceramic’s irregularities and/or variances in size, glaze or texture, reflect the many human touches received during the making process. The above is the additional value of any handmade process and must be embraced as an intrinsic characteristic of our ceramics.

All our tableware is food-safe (click here for test report) and can be safely used in microwave and dishwashers.

Sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven) is likely to cause thermal shock, which may create fissures in the glaze or clay body. Dishwasher may accelerate the fading of a luster glaze, hand washing is recommended for these type of ceramic surfaces.

Raku-ware needs special care. Please refer to this specific sheet for maintenance and precautions.
