Lead-safe Pottery—More Than a Trend
The best times happen when family and friends gather around the dinner table. It is here that memories are shared like the dishes being passed around.
We know how precious these moments are and the role ceramic dinnerware can play in you and your loved ones lives.
Therefore, we believe that unsafe, toxic dinnerware shouldn’t crash the party.
Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
One of the biggest concerns facing the ceramic dishware industry is the inclusion of lead through leaded glazes, clay and paint.
Currently, the Food and Drug Administration allows “lead-safe” dishware, or dishware that has small traces of lead, to be regulated and sold in the United States.
However, those ceramics can still be leaching lead into food through microwaving, acidic foods or drinks or through hairline cracks—which can pose risks such as lead poisoning.
We believe that excessive lead in pottery is an unsustainable way of life. Therefore, we strive to make the safest non-toxic dinnerware possible—because your family’s well being matters.
Every piece of pottery we make is:
Additionally, our non-toxic dishes are California Proposition 65 compliant, a proposition that puts ceramic dinnerware safety first by requiring all products containing traces of lead to be marked accordingly. Best of all, our ceramic dinnerware is made in the USA. Since 1977, our Virginia-based company has been creating beautiful, artistically-crafted dinnerware and serveware that is inspired by traditional, early-American pottery.
