Caring for your Pottery

Congratulations on your Glosters designer pottery purchase! We hope you enjoy your new pieces for years to come, so we’ve put together a little guide to caring for your pottery.

Tableware

1: Can I put my tableware in the dishwasher?

Absolutely, all our ceramic tableware is safe in the dishwasher, this includes our ceramic plates and bowls of all kinds including our pouring & mixing bowls.

2: Can I put my ceramic tableware in the microwave?

Yes, you can put ceramic tableware in the mucrowave unless you have a metallic glaze. 

3: Do the ceramic dishes mark with cutlery?

Occasionally you might see some marking on the ceramic tableware glazes from cutlery, we recommend using ‘bar keepers friend’ to remove these marks.

Mugs, Muglets, Mugsters & Beakers-

1: Are they dishwasher proof?

We pride ourselves on our drinking vessels and we really hope you love them as much as we do, we recommend hand washing the handmade mugs, but rest assured if they do end up in the dishwasher every now and again they will be okay. But as a general rule to prolong their life we really recommend taking the time to hand wash them. 

2: What about microwaving? 

Again, it shouldn’t be a problem, but to prolong the life of your mug it might be best to heat your hot chocolate milk in a jug and pour it in afterwards. 

Jugs & Vases

1: Are your vases water proof?

They are indeed, each handmade vase is glazed in a transparent glaze inside which means they can hold water and keep your flowers looking fresh.

2: How should I clean a jug or vase?

We recommend hand washing both our vases and milk jugs.
