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 and sealed are done so using lead free, food-safe glazes & sealant 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 our pieces, unless gold lustred, into the dishwasher and oven, however we do recommend washing by hand and placing pieces into the oven whilst it warms up to avoid thermal shock breakages. Colours of some glazes may fade with prolonged dishwasher use. Textured areas can be gently bristle brushed clean. If you prefer to hand wash, do so with warm soapy water and allow to dry thoroughly.
Using pieces in the microwave may lead to crazing.
Unglazed surfaces are sealed with a food safe natural sealant and are water and stain resistant, however corrosive chemicals in electronic dishwashing detergent may corrode the sealant over time.
I fire my stoneware clays to high temperatures which makes the pieces resistant and very durable. That being said we are constantly striving to improve the quality & durability of our products.
