Caring for
K. Allison Ceramics

K. Allison Ceramics are individually handcrafted from porcelain clay. Please expect unique variations between each piece.

While many of the designs have unglazed exteriors, all interior food surfaces use food-safe glazes suitable for both hot and cold substances.

All pieces are dishwasher and microwave-safe, except those with metallic luster decoration. However, to retain the quality of each piece and ensure it lives a long life, hand-washing is recommended. A non-abrasive cloth or sponge with warm, soapy water is best.

Please help your pieces avoid the freezer and oven, as the extreme temperature changes can cause thermal shock that results in cracking or breakage.

Despite its reputation for being fragile, porcelain is rated as one of the most durable clays available. K. Allison Ceramics porcelain wares can be used, enjoyed, and loved as much daily as for special occasions. Handle your new ceramics with care and you can look forward to many years of happiness together!

All carvings for the Birch and Charcoal Collections and form alterations for the Frenzy and Saturation Collections are completed individually by hand. Slips are dyed in-studio and hand-applied.

THE FIRING

All pieces are bisque fired to cone 06 (1828 degrees) and glaze fired to cone 6 (2232 degrees)  in an oxidation environment.
