All of our Bermuda Clayworks' tableware is food safe, dishwasher safe and microwave safe.
Our tableware is all made onsite using a low fired earthenware white clay body and fired to cone 04 which is just over 1940 degrees farenheit. Once fired the bisque is painted in the various designs using food safe underglazes. The pots are then fired to set the colours and then dipped in a transluscent gloss glaze for the third and final firing. Colours will not fade or change over time. No lead is used in any of our materials.
CARE OF YOUR POTTERY
It is handmade pottery so still handle with care to prevent chipping. It is advisable to warm teapots with hot tap water prior to brewing tea. This warms the pot keeping your tea hot longer but also prevents thermal shock which lengthens the life of your teapot. Tea and coffee stains in mugs and teapots can simply be removed with a weak solution of water and bleach if needed. Plates can be kept warm in the oven prior to service. Our current tableware is designed for serving and not for baking and cooking.
