How are Mao Projects ceramics made?
Mao Projects ceramics are made with stoneware clay, fired in an electric kiln (two or three times), and glazed to be food safe, unless stated otherwise. We give each piece a great deal of attention, focusing on quality and the development of our own unique aesthetic. We use processes of hand building and slip casting to create functional and sculptural objects for daily enjoyment.
How should I take care of Mao Projects ceramics?
Mao Projects ceramic tableware pieces are made with stoneware clay that is glaze fired to cone 6, making it food safe, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe. We do recommend hand washing, as it is more gentle on the pieces. Additionally, we suggest avoiding quick temperature changes between hot and cold as this can cause damage to the pieces due to thermal shock, resulting in cracking or breakage.
*Spoons and Lustred objects (Gold and Mother of Pearl) are particularly delicate and should be handled with extra care.
Treated with care, your pieces will last a lifetime :)
