Casseroles, Rammekins, Eggshell (Magnesia) glaze, gas fired. All pots produced are fired to Stoneware temperatures (1250 – 1310 degrees centigrade). This means they are able to be used for cooking, and are dishwasher and microwave safe. The clay and glaze are bonded because they both at least partially melt into one – hence the name ‘stoneware’ which denotes that the firing temperature has turned the clay into ‘stone’. Both glaze and pot are made stronger and more hard wearing by this high firing. I have customers who have used particular pots every day for longer than 35 years.
Raw Blue Dinnerware Clockwise from front right: Porridge bowl, dessert bowl, stack of dinner bowls, dinner plate. All Raw Blue glaze. The rim and outside of ‘Raw Blue’ is unglazed (by being waxed before glazing) and is fired in a gas fired kiln. As a contrast to wood firing the clay remains its natural colour and is not at all glazed.
