Pottery is one of the oldest professions in the world. Shards from ancient pottery are one of the most common things found in archaeological digs. It is a very durable material that when cared for properly will last lifetimes.
Having used our own pottery for over 25 years, we take great pride that the vessels made with our hands will last.
Some thoughts on care and use:
All of our pottery is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.
Some of our darker glazes contain iron and those pots may heat up more than lighter colours in the microwave.
When using pottery in the oven we strongly recommend placing the dish or casserole in the oven as it warms up. Pottery does not react well to sudden temperature changes and may crack.
DO NOT EVER place any Newschool pottery on a heated stove top. It will break.
Be careful when filling a sink with dishes. Mug handles and rims are fragile and the parts most often broken.
Teapots will develop a fine network of cracks that are visible on the inside of the pot. This is a natural result of pouring boiling water into the pot. It is still safe to drink from.
