Are ceramic pieces safe with food?
Yes, all functional pieces are food-safe. I work with commercially prepared, non-toxic underglazes and glazes in my work.
Are pieces dishwasher safe?
They are! All items can be safely washed in the dishwasher. For large trays and serving dishes, I recommend hand washing to safeguard against chipping breakage.
What about the microwave and oven?
It is safe to put your pottery in the microwave. Keep in mind that some glazes I use might present small surface cracking from heating in the microwave; this doesn't effect the the structure of the item and in some cases enhances the design.
I don't recommend putting items in the oven, as the clay I use can be sensitive to sudden changes in temperature e.g. placing a dish from the refrigerator into a preheated oven.
