NOTE: there is a subtle crackle effect in the upper glaze that may evolve over time. Japanese teaware potters see this as a sought after feature and that a piece has not ‘matured’ until this feature is present. Since it is only present on the mug exterior, this feature does not affect its functionality
~ This piece was photographed next to a window with natural, midday light. Glaze brightness will vary in different lighting conditions.
~ Made on the wheel with Laguna B-Mix clay and food safe glazes.
Although, technically, my pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe, we do not recommend it since they are works of art that should be treated with care. The following recommendations are encouraged for all handmade pottery. . Dishwasher use may increase the chances of chipping the rim. 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 water in it is microwaved, it may crack. Although it is a rare occurrence, ceramics can fracture from thermal shock. To avoid this possibility, fill your cup or mug with hot tap water as you are heating your tea water to warm the mug before adding boiling water. If handled properly, these pieces are intended to last many lifetimes, like treasured family heirlooms. We recommend hand washing your pieces and avoiding the microwave.
Unless otherwise indicated, all orders going to the same address will be shipped together (up to 4 pieces in one box). Shipping overages will be issued once an order has been packed and weighed. Due to businesses currently working with a reduced workforce, refunds may take longer to process through credit and debit processors.
UPDATE: Due to increased caution with international shipping, packages may take longer to pass through the International Customs Departments. If your package is being shipped internationally, you may have additional customs fees, duties or value added taxes added to your shipping cost and may require a package to be picked up at a nearby post office. Be sure to keep a close eye on your order tracking. It might be helpful to find an online ‘import taxes calculator’ for your country’s customs agency to get an idea of any possible added costs. Use the HS code 691200. Some countries charge up to 20% tax of a packages value. If the fees are too costly and you wish to cancel your order, please let me know within 36 hours.
