ABOUT LYNAE ZEBEST:
I make all of the work you see in my shop, with my two hands and a variety of simple tools. I am a very tactile person. I was primarily trained as a 2D artist (illustration), and I often draw on those skills, combined with my love of nature and literature, in my work. All of my pieces have a bit of "wabi sabi" to them--they are each unique, personal creations, not meant to be "factory standard." Their beauty is in their imperfection.

I live in a beautifully faded Edwardian apartment in San Francisco, CA, with my husband and a big cat with orange eyes. I'm in my mid-20s.

ABOUT LYNAE'S CERAMICS:
I handbuild all of my work using stoneware clay and glazes. I do not use a potter's wheel. I use an electric kiln for all my ware, firing at temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees Farenheit (cone 5).

All of the glazes I use for food-related items are foodsafe. Some of the glazes used on my decorative items may not be foodsafe.

My ceramics are generally very strong and durable. However, to ensure a minimum of wear, I recommend treating them gently. Don't use bleach or abrasives when cleaning them, and don't expose them to extreme temperature changes (i.e. a hot oven to a cold freezer).

My kitchen items are usually microwave- and dishwasher-safe, unless it says otherwise in the item description. That said, I always recommend handwashing and minimal microwaving to ensure a long life for the piece.

I use solid copper components in most of my jewelry. Copper tarnishes over time; some people enjoy the aged look, and some don't. If you want to make your copper shiny again, dip it in lemon juice!
