Due to the nature of this style of glazing you may, over time, see a subtle crackle effect forming in the exterior glazing of your piece. Different pottery traditions put different values on this effect but the Eastern pottery tradition sees it as a sought after feature and not something to avoid. Collectors of Eastern pottery, specifically Eastern teaware, actually seek this feature out...that the piece is not mature until crackling is present. Like with Eastern teaware, this effect is likely to evolve as your mug matures. This only occurs on the outside of the piece due to the multiple glaze layers and does not affect the integrity of your piece.
Note: "crackle effect is inconsistently patterned. Also, a few small pits.

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.
