As reported by our instructor in the studio, if too much color is applied during firing, it creates bubbles in the glaze or even causes it to detach, resulting in poor adhesion to the object. The effect we call craquelure occurs when the glaze develops small cracks during the kiln firing process, resembling tiny grooves inside it (see prototypes in the studio). This is entirely normal in pottery; the object isn’t broken and remains perfectly waterproof and durable!
If you have further questions about your object, feel free to email us, and for our refund policy, please refer to our terms and conditions.

Our pottery painting items are entirely crafted by our staff in our production studio in Zurich. It typically takes between one and two weeks from the birth of an object to its completion, as the object undergoes several phases. We use a technique called ‘slipcasting’. ‘Slip’ is essentially liquified clay, in a creamy, pourable consistency. We mix powdered clay with water and let it settle for a couple of weeks to ensure there are no air bubbles present. Then, we pour the mixture into plaster molds that solidify the clay, and after a few minutes, we remove them from the molds. The items are left to rest for 1-2 days and then finished with a sponge and smoothed. They are dried and fired at 980 degrees for about 2 days. Afterwards, they are transported to our pottery painting studios and are ready to be painted. Handcrafting our items gives us greater control over the materials used, quality, and functionality. Additionally, each object is truly unique and crafted slowly in Switzerland.

No, we do not currently offer firing services for external  customers using their own materials.
