Each piece of pottery is handcrafted in a small atelier in Europe from white European Clay. From beginning to end, each piece requires approximately 35 hours of work. During the process, our handthrown pottery and bakeware are fired twice in a precision-controlled electric oven. Crazing will typically occur during the first fire. This is a desired effect to enhance the individuality of each piece. Crazing does not affect the quality or durability of the item.
