Our stoneware pottery is durable, versatile and safe to use, and it is ovenware, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe. Our clay and glazes contain no harmful materials. For baking we suggest warming our pieces in the oven, rather than placing it in a preheated oven. Mugs and teapots should be rinsed with hot tap water before pouring in boiling water. These precautions will eliminate the drastic temperature changes that sometimes cause damage to a piece of stoneware.
