    What clay do you use?




    - Keane White Raku 

    - Keane Stoneware 33 

    - Keanne White Stoneware 7

    What temperature are pieces fired at?

    All the clays are first “bisque” fired at 1000C. Earthenware is then glaze-fired at 1100c, whilst Stoneware is fired at 1280c.

    Are the pieces porous?

    Earthenware clay is still porous, like a terracotta pot. Glazed pieces do hold water. These pieces are more delicate than commercial grade dinnerware.

    Stoneware clay matures at higher temperatures and is more durable than earthenware; less porous and is made harder by vitreous (glass) material added to it for strength.

    It is denser than earthenware so resists scratching better.  

    Are the bowls food safe?

    Earthenware glazed pieces are safe but don't use if any cracks appear, as the clay is still be porous. They should not be used in a microwave, oven or dishwasher.

    Unglazed or glazed stoneware pieces are both food safe because the clay particles vitrify enough (they melt together enough) to form a waterproof surface. 

    Will the colours fade?
