Functional porcelain ceramics made by none other than Sofia's Dad. Glazes are dishwasher safe, microwave-able and are LEAD FREE. You can eat off of them and drink out of them and I do. Pots are thrown on an electric wheel and fired in an electric kiln. These pieces are decorated using a combination of chattering and etching using a resist. Chattering is a method of allowing a metal "rib" to bounce on the surface of a rotating vessel while the resist method is done by physically painting a resist on with a brush and etching the areas that are left exposed. The latter method can be done multiple times and the combination of techniques results in various delicate and visually complex decorations.

Note: I will ship anywhere that the US Postal Service ships which is almost everywhere. I have successfully shipped to England, Belgium and Australia. If you live outside the US, just send me a message via Etsy or email me at go2sew(at)gmail(dot)com and I will pack the piece, take it to the Post Office, get the shipping price, and edit the listing with said price to your particular country.
