Care and Use information:
I use a high temperature grogless white Stoneware claybody made with locally mined ingredients from Loafers Glory, NC. It’s close to a porcelain type claybody but strong like stoneware. It is perfect for all your baking and serving needs as it is the strongest clay available. Some knobs/feet and handles are made with the whitest porcelain available anywhere and are left unglazed for the beauty, they clean up easy with either Comet or Dawn dish soap though dishwasher cleans it up nicely.
Bottom of the dishwasher and oven safe. Start with a cold oven and room temperature pot. 325* F recommended. Before adding hot liquids/food to a room temp pot such as tureen/platter or teapot run under hot water to preheat. When removing hot pot from oven place on a dish towel or wood trivet/cutting board and not directly onto a cold marble or other surface that is cold.
Fired to 2400* F this clay can take the heat but no quick and extreme temperature changes. It takes 18 hours to fire and 3 days to cool down the kiln its fired in.
Glazes are all safe and loved to be rubbed to a high shine with paper towel or terry cloth.
I sometimes use cane handles on my pots such as baskets and teapots and they need to be spritzed with water on occassion to keep from drying out too much. If you live in a high humidity area adding a bit of bleach to the water keeps any mold from forming and will get rid of any if it has formed.
