From Scratch Ceramics is a blog dedicated to ceramics and baking. I bake something new each month, and then design a unique type of pottery to go with it. The pottery is then put up on my shop to sell.
That too! Treat it like you would any other dishes you might have.
Yes, I have taken great care to make sure all of the clays and glazes that are used in the studio are safe to be eaten off of, and everything is 100% lead-free.
I love getting creative and collaborating! If you have an idea I would love to hear about it. You can send me an e-mail here so we can talk about it in more detail.
One of the best things about stoneware is it’s ability to heat evenly, and hold it’s temperature (this is what leads to perfectly crisp pie crusts). However sudden changes in temperature can create a problem if you’re not careful. Never put one of your pieces of pottery over an open flame, or on a hot surface as uneven heating may damage your piece. When baking, if it’s possible to preheat your food with the oven, please do. If that isn’t an option I suggest running your pottery under a bit of hot water, before you add your filling and place into a pre-heated oven.
Cutlery marks may develop on some pieces of pottery from everyday use over time. What is most likely happening is that your cutlery is leaving markings on the surface of the glaze. These marks can be removed with a bit of baking soda and water.
