All pieces are handmade with stoneware clay, glazed and fired at 1240°C.
This ashtray is made from a black stoneware clay and glazed on the inside with a natural clay which I gathered from Elaia village in Peloponnese and turned it into a glaze. Every time you gather clay from nature the result can be totaly different depending on the composotion of the ground, the climate conditions, the time of the year and other factors. The results are unpredictable and sometimes surprising. This is what makes this ashtray and the ones to follow unique.
Handcrafted ceramic items may slightly differ in colour, size or shape, making each one unique.
Microwave and dishwasher safe. But hand washing is recommended to maintain the piece in its best condition.
To keep your pieces beautiful and in good condition:
Avoid sudden temperature changes as it is likely to cause thermal shock.
Don't leave them with staining or acidic substances for long periods of time because this may lead to color alterations.
As I am a small producer I don't have a big stock of items. If pieces are not in stock I can make them to order.Small custom made orders are usually ready within 3-4 weeks.
