FAQ

Is the pottery dishwasher and microwave safe? Food and drink safe?


Yes, all of my handmade pieces are dishwasher safe, microwave safe, and food and drink safe!




Where is the pottery made?


All pottery is made by hand in Orinda, a small town nestled in the hills of the East Bay Area outside of San Francisco, California.




How do I care for my pottery?


My glazed ceramic pottery can be either hand washed or put in the dishwasher. Please visit the Ceramic Care page for more information.




What type of clay, glaze, and kiln do you use?


I use several clay bodies that I purchase from a local clay distributor. One is an off-white clay, one is a dark bodied clay, and one is a buff colored clay. I fire all work in my Cress electric kiln, to Cone 6, which is about 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. I make my own glazes. To see my adventures in glaze making, follow me on Instagram @kecpotter.




Can I visit your studio and pick out a piece to buy in person?


I’d love to meet you if you are in the San Francisco area. Please reach out and we can arrange a studio visit.
