CERAMIC WARE + CARE

Clay Studio's ceramic ware is food safe, created with lead-free glazes and vitrified for everyday use. In terms of food-safety, you want your ceramic ware to be vitrified so the clay does not absorb liquids. Each piece is specified as oven, microwave or dishwasher safe on the product pages.

Hand washing is recommended, and care instructions are included to help preserve your pottery for years to come.

"Vitrification transforms clay from a porous body to a surface bonded to its glass particles at a kiln fire appropriate to the clay's cone. Vitrified clay is water impermeable, making glazed and specified unglazed surfaces functional and water resistant."
