How is Museware Pottery made? Our pottery is hand painted on unfinished, white earthenware. Many of our images are reproduced using hand made or hand carved stamps, some with stamps found in the retail marketplace. Each piece receives up to 5 layers of paint before being kiln fired at 1835* for up to 9 hours, resulting in a smooth, glossy, food safe finish. Due to the handmade nature of our product, no two pieces are exactly alike. Crooked letters, differences in pottery dimension, paint color & darkness, image placement and composition are present in every piece of Museware's personalized pottery. Our Real Life & Sepia collections are handcrafted, using our own in-house ceramic screens & are kiln fired for a shiny, durable finish.
Do you include a gift card with your pottery? We will hand write a personal message on one of our gift cards. Simply type your gift message into the "optional gift message" text box, shown on the item order page. An artist card containing a brief company history and care instructions is included with each piece of Museware's personalized pottery.
How should I care for my pottery? Our personalized pottery is made with lead free, non toxic materials and is food safe. Extend the life of your art pottery by avoiding microwave and conventional ovens. Due to the sentimental value of our personalized pottery, hand washing is recommended.
I lost the instructions for my pottery pen. Can you help? Sure can. Prior to use, shake your pottery pen well. Press the white tip repeatedly against a piece of paper to start paint flow. Our pottery pens write like a marker. Damp wipe mistakes. Be sure to cap your pen tightly between use and store flat. Allow signatures to dry overnight then bake in a 300* home oven for 30 minutes. Writing is now permanent and food safe.
Should your pen dry out, it is possible to save it. Holding it upright, remove the tip and soak for several hours in hot, even boiling water. Replace the tip and prime. While this does not always work, it is worth a try.
