FAQ and process:

Brief process description:

After the raw brown elastic clay is turned into pot, we give it few days for drying (during the time, pottery shrinks a bit and it can break in peaces if was incorrectly treated). After that pottery gets polished with stone to get smooth nice surface. After that any drawings and symbols can be scratched on to pottery, few more days for drying are still needed.

Then follows the firing of the kiln - it is 24 hour process where heat in the kiln must be raised in correct pace. When temperature in the kiln is close to maximum, kiln gets rapidly closed down and all cracks get crammed with clay. Its called "reduction" and this is when clay turns black.

When pottery is taken out of the kiln, it's cleaned with the bee wax. It makes surface of the pottery perfectly smooth and grants the pottery a centuries of lifetime.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions to the author of the pottery:

Q: Are they food-safe?
A: They are super-safe! It's pure, natural clay with no additives or metal-based glaze - it's simple and safe.

Q: If they have no glaze, are they useful for everyday use?
A: Yes, they are. Actually - more you use them- better looking and practical they get! Clay surface is stone polished which makes them shiny and glaze-alike and easy to wash them.

Q: Is it microwave and dishwasher safe?
A: Yes it is, I've tried it. But I recommend handwash and no microwaves for it- it's a bit alive.
