Each piece is thrown on the potter's wheel and is then dried in the Alentejo sun before being first fired. It's then dipped in white clay, glazed and then fired a second time. The pottery is family-owned and has been in business for over 200 years.
All pottery must be wash before first use in hot soapy water, rinsed well, and allowed to air dry.
To maintain the integrity of the pieces (i.e. colour, glaze) dishwasher use is not recommended.
Some marks in the glaze are natural and expected, as is some crazing. This will not affect the use or durability of the pieces
