We suggest treating all handmade glass with care to keep it free from knocks, chips and scratches. Much of our porcelain is microwave and dishwasher safe however please refer to the main copy on this site for more detailed instructions of how to care for our glassware and porcelain.

Glass

We suggest treating all handmade glass with care to keep it free from knocks, chips and scratches and recommend the following care instructions:

  • hand washing the glass in warm, soapy water and drying with a soft cloth
  • avoid the use of any abrasive detergents or materials when cleaning and drying the glass
  • unlike toughened glass, soda glass is not heat proof so please do not:
    • heat to excessive temperatures
    • heat or cool too quickly for the avoidance of thermal shock
  • handpainted products, in particular those with metallic paints, should be washed and dried with particular care
  • do not put glass in the microwave

A range of our glass items are dishwasher safe. Our dishwasher safe guidelines are subject to testing under the following conditions:

  • dishwasher run on a cool cycle
  • a mild detergent is used
  • tested for up to 25 washes

Porcelain

Porcelain is fine, translucent and strong and therefore ideal for use in the home. Our plain white porcelain is fired twice - a biscuit firing and a glaze firing - and is dishwasher and microwave safe. Decorated porcelain is fired for a third time.

Our coloured porcelain may have been decorated in one of the following ways:

  • hand-painted / hand sprayed
  • transfer (sometimes referred to as decal; applied either 'in-glaze' or ' on-glaze')

We recommend the following care instructions for our porcelain:

  • most of our porcelain is microwave and dishwasher safe and is back-stamped accordingly on the base
  • plain white porcelain is dishwasher safe
  • plain white porcelain may be warmed in the oven but is not oven-proof
  • items that are NOT marked dishwasher safe should be hand washed
  • do not put any items with a metallic décor in the microwave

Our dishwasher safe guidelines are subject to testing under the following conditions:

  • dishwasher run on a cool cycle
  • a mild detergent is used
  • Tested for up to 25 washes

Wood

A selection of our products are made using oak and ash from FSC 100% approved sources. To retain the material’s natural beauty and texture, some of our wood pieces are untreated and will age naturally. Should you wish to treat the natural wood you may use a food safe oil.

We recommend the following care options for all of our wood pieces:

  • clean with a soft cloth or damp cloth
  • do not leave immersed in water
  • do not use in a dishwasher
  • allow to dry naturally without heat
