Frequently asked questions
Are these microwave safe?

Unfortunately, the gold and all metallic lusters are metal coatings and therefore cannot go in the microwave.

Custom and personalized orders

I can do custom orders, but you will need to contact me with questions. There is an upcharge for custom orders depending on what you are asking. I reserve the right to not make a custom order due to time, ability, or cost. Assume any custom order may take three weeks up to two months to complete due to the nature of my process.

Care instructions

As stated in the descriptions of each piece, I don't recommend dishwashers for any handmade pottery. The soap in dishwashers is a mild abrasive and can eventually cause certain finishes to become dull or even wear away. For all of my handmade pots made by me or other potters, I only handwash.

What is translucent porcelain?

I make my own clay body that is very glass-like in nature. Because of this and the thin walls of the pieces, it allows light to pass through. They are not see-through.

Can you ship faster if I need quickly?

I can ship quicker if you contact me soon after ordering. If you contact me before ordering, it will help make sure I can help you to make sure it arrives by a certain date.
