Pottery Care

Pottery is meant to be used and loved every day, not just for display. The pieces I make are glazed stoneware and as such they may be put in the dishwasher, oven, and microwave. When using it in the oven, I recommend putting it on a separate baking sheet and not using it with the broiler. Avoid thermal shock (such as putting a piece directly from the oven into a refrigerator) as this can cause cracks. If displaying a piece outdoors it should be protected from extreme weather.
