Story & Philosophy
Can I request a custom order?We will do our best to work with you on a custom order. Fill out the Custom/wholesale order page. Check out the portfolio for things we have made in the past!
Can I microwave it?Yes! Raymonda Ceramics uses: Food Safe Microwave safe Top rack dishwasher safe clay and glazes! We do recommend avoiding Thermal Shock from transferring the ceramic piece from room temperature to hot or cold. So, don't put it in the fridge then pour boiling water in a mug, it might break or crack.
Do you make everything?Yes! I found pottery in college, and it stole my heart. Everythiing is handmade and takes days to be complete. I use the pottery wheel and hand rolled slabs. The pieces are trimmed and altered by hand then decorated using a variety of mediums and processes, using underglazes, carving or screenprinted images. Each piece takes two trips through the kiln reaching 2232F.
