My work is intended for everyday use and enjoyment. While very durable, microwavable, and dishwasher safe, handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: Because of the abrasive nature of dishwashing detergent, which could eventually dull the surface over time, hand-washing is not necessary, but recommended.
Please keep in mind that while handmade pottery is quite durable, it is still ceramic and can be damaged if dropped or knocked about. Often, flaws created during impact will not be detectable immediately. Impact flaws can develop into a crack or break with use over time.
I cannot replace ware damaged from use.
