mother of pearl FAQ + care

a translucent overglaze with a beautiful iridescence shine 

ware decorated with overglazes should not be used in microwave ovens.

this overglaze can be used on surfaces that come into contact with food and drink.

care must be taken to avoid hard scrubbing when washing overglazed ware, because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of luster.

treat your overglazed pieces as you would fine china. although overglazed ware will take repeated washings in a dishwasher, the overglaze will eventually wear away.


A note about shipping: I know it seems pricey, but ceramic items are heavy (this cup clocks in at around 14 oz + packaging materials to keep it safe in transit and it's at least 2 lbs. when it's all said and done. Thanks for your understanding!
