Which materials do you use?
Clay as a base material and raw materials such as feldspar and wood ash for the glaze are used in my work.
Where do your materials come from?
I purchase my clay with no middleman from the Westerwald region in Germany. My raw materials used are from Germany, Austria and France. My wood ash is mainly ‘homemade’ and partly supplied from the Hochwald.
What do I have to consider with the products?
Each ceramic piece is fired at 1250°C and is therefore waterproof. The glazes are lead-free, food safe and dishwasher-proof. Nevertheless, it is always advisable to wash the ceramics by hand, as this is more gentle. Do not expose the ceramic to extreme temperature changes as this may cause cracking.
The wooden elements can be gently wiped with a damp cloth for cleaning. Please avoid soaking the product in water or storing it in humid rooms. If necessary, the wooden element can be resanded after some time and oiled with edible oil.
The earrings made of porcelain and gold-plated metal are very delicate. Do not let them fall and do not exert strong force on them. Do not store the earrings in humid places.
