May I place a special order, order wholesale, or visit your studio?
Yes to all! Please contact me with your request.
Is each collection different?
Yes, each collection is different depending on what inspires me at the time. I do however still make pieces from past collections.
What can I expect from my Klomp Ceramics purchase?
All Klomp Ceramics items are unique, handmade stoneware pieces. Each piece is made and glazed by hand adding to its individual organic quality and character.
All pieces when glazed are done so using lead free, food-safe glazes unless otherwise stated.
I love and am proud of each and every one of my pieces, as I hope you will be when they pass over to you.
How do I care for and clean my Klomp Ceramics purchase?
It is possible to put most pieces, unless gold lustred, into the dishwasher and oven, however we recommend washing functional Klomp Ceramics pieces by hand by wiping them with warm soapy water, avoid soaking, and ensure any unglazed areas are dried well. Colours of some glazes may fade with prolonged dishwasher use. Textured areas can be gently bristle brushed clean.
Its is not recommended to use any Klomp Ceramics pieces in the microwave.
Unglazed surfaces are water and stain resistant but not stain proof so please be sure to clean food (especially oily or red sauces) from these surfaces immediately after use. Warm water mixed with baking soda applied with a bristle brush is gentle and works well.
I fire my stoneware clays to a very high temperature which makes the pieces resistant and very durable.
Thank you for shopping at Klomp Ceramics!
