This pot is made of white stoneware, without any glaze. That means it is purely decorative in it's function.
Process: Once the pot is bisque fired, it is fired again to 1800 degrees, removed from the kiln, and horse hair is touched to the surface. Due to the temperature of the pot, the hair instantly burns off, leaving the decorative black marks you see. It is treated with a stone wax, but is not water proof or food safe.
All pieces are hand-crafted by me, Emily, at a local ceramics studio in Chicago. This is my hobby, and I am looking to share my art with those who appreciate it! I only create functional ceramics, as I believe art should not be excluded from everyday life. If you decide to buy one of my pieces, I hope you appreciate them as much as I do!

All sales are final.
Dealing with fragile objects can sometimes be a challenge. I will do my best to package your order in a way that will deliver it safely to you, however, accidents in transit sometimes happen. If your order arrives broken or chipped, please message me directly and I will replace it with an item as close to the original as possible OR refund your order (not including shipping costs).
All of my pottery is food safe, microwave safe, oven safe and (if you choose) dishwasher safe. The only pieces for sale that are NOT food safe, microwave safe, or oven safe are the Hair pots.
If you so choose, you may use a dishwasher to clean your pottery or you may choose to handwash it. Using a dishwasher may cause the glaze to etch, which over time may reduce the visual quality of the piece.
Note: Although my pottery is oven-safe, please avoid rapid temperature changes when using a piece in conjunction with the oven (i.e. do not parbake a pie crust and then add frozen berries to the hot pie plate/crust). This will ensure the longest life possible for your beautiful purchase.
