how we make our products
Get to know our secrets.. Well. Not all of them ofcourse.
No step to explaining our extraordinary talent.
We create shapes by hand and we throw on the weel.
drying process 1
after forming we let the pieces dry till they are "leather hard"
when the Plates are leather hard we trim the excess clay off, and now we have the final shape.
drying process 2
we let our pieces dry for about 3 weeks so we are sure, there is no more water in the clay.
after the drying process we load the kiln and fire the tableware on 1000 degrees Celsius.
this process takes 12 hours to finish and another 12 hours to cool down.
now we put the glaze on the pottery and fire it again.
glaze is a glass powder that melts on the shard to get the colors.
temperatures wil now rise between 1220 and 1270 degrees celsius.
this fire also takes 24 hours to be completed.
grinding & polishing
we grind our plates on three different type of diamond sheets to get the surface smooth.
polishing for a nice end result.
packaging & sending
Even the packaging we take very seriously and therefor, we often use wood to ship our products to far away countries.
sending is most of the times with the same service we use in europe, but for big quantities we send by other transport companies and we put it on a pallet.
we still have to hear from our first unsatisfied customer, but we hope that day never comes!
