About

Happy Homes Make Happy People!

I returned to my ceramist roots in 2011 after spending a decade in public service leading several arts-based initiatives for the homeless and at-risk youth. Working in charity, I noticed one constant in all people no matter what their circumstances: that home was not just four walls, home was where are heart was, regardless of what it looked like. With that in mind I wanted to take on the functional items we used every day: dish ware.

In fall 2011, my pot-bellied, footed bowls snuck onto the blogosphere and went viral in only weeks, capturing the imagination of people around the world. I was flooded with emails sharing with her how much the footed bowls made people smile. The footed bowls sold out in a matter of days.

After a brief hiatus to develop a sustainable business platform, I reemerged in the summer of 2012 with an expanded collection and renewed commitment to making home accessories that bring joy and happiness into our lives.

I firmly believe that growing up does not mean growing old; and that deep inside all of us all is the sense of excitement we had as kids when facing new discoveries…our wonder and delight when we saw that the impossible was actually possible!

My work is based on the company’s founding beliefs: that play is a lifestyle choice and that our homes should make us happy!

Additional policies and FAQs
1. Are your products dishwasher and microwave safe?

Yes! All our products are dishwasher and microwave safe! However we recommend you use care with all Dylan Kendall items and do not remove dish ware directly from the microwave without gloves or kitchen towels as with all stoneware items, they retain heat and will be hot!

2. What if my friends come over and try to steal my Dylan Kendall bowls?

Ah yes, we understand. There is something oddly intimate about our products, and friends and family alike have been known to become very attached to them. In the case that this happens, we suggest you have a sit-down with the guilty party and encourage him or her to visit dylankendall.com to bring home their own Dylan Kendall products.

3. Are there more items coming?

Yes! The Efeet Collection is growing by leaps and bounds with new colors…sign up for our newsletter to be alerted regarding future roll-outs! In addition, Dylan is busy working on new items that involve more interactive and fun home accessories!

4. Why does my Efeet item rattle?

We construct the items in the Efeet Collection by hand and when the feet get attached to the body, we have to add a small hole to vent the air in the feet during firing. The air inside the feet, otherwise, would heat up and without a release, cause the feet to blow up. Sometimes a bit of clay gets trapped in the feet when we are punching the hole. This fragment is fired in the foot and then makes the jingling noise. This happens infrequently, but it does happen. We, however, love that some of our products are musical as well!

Product Care

Dylan Kendall products are produced with care but because of the nature of balencing clay bodies on feet there may very periodically be irregularities in the shape of the item. We screen these items with care before shipping however some may be so slight as to not be noticed by us. Additionally we use a lead-free glaze which, again, periodically may lead to pinholes in the glaze. We also screen these items with care but occasionally there may be pinholes in the glaze.

All dinnerware and serving accessories meet FDA and Prop 65 requirements.

DISHWASHER USE

All Dylan Kendall items are dishwasher safe. We recommend using the low-energy/air-dry cycle and not overloading the dishwasher. Hand washing is recommended for decorative or oversized pieces.

MICROWAVE USE

After extensive testing of several product lines, Dylan Kendall has determined that certain collections may be used in the microwave. These items will be marked as such on the packaging and indicated on this website in the product details for those collections. These include the bowl, the creamer, the sugar bowl and the sugar packet caddy.

Thus, as with all products used in a microwave, please use the following precautions:

> Always use a pot holder or oven mitt when handling the product as item may get hot.

> Do not permit children to handle any product that has been heated in a microwave.

> Do not put any products into a microwave without food or liquid on or inside the piece.

> Allow item to cool before taking it out of the microwave.

OVEN USE

Dylan Kendall ceramics are not intended to be used in the oven. Please do not attempt to cook or bake an item in the bowl or any other piece.
