Caring For Your Sublime Pottery
Although Sublime Pottery is durable and made with materials that are dishwasher and microwave safe, they are also works of art that should be treated with care. These instructions are recommended for all handmade pottery that you want to keep 'healthy' for generations.
- It is recommend to hand wash your pieces and avoid the microwave.
- The dishwasher may, over time, dull the sheen of the glaze and increase the chances of chipping the rim when loading and unloading.
- As with any handmade pottery, avoid leaving it in a sink of water, which will seep into any exposed clay. If a piece - that has trapped water in it - is microwaved, it may crack.
- Occasionally, ceramics can fracture from thermal shock, especially if the mug is cold to the touch. To avoid this possibility, fill your cup or mug with hot tap water and warm it up for a minute before adding boiling water. NOTE: we test every mug that goes out by adding boiling water to an unheated mug and letting it sit for an hour, to check for leakage.
If handled properly, these pieces are intended to last many lifetimes, like treasured family heirlooms.
