What are your ceramics made of?


All of the ceramics are porcelain slip.




Are your ceramics food safe?


Yes. If the piece is functional and intended for food use - cups, tumblers, mugs, bowls, plates, spoons - the pieces is food safe. If the piece is not intended for foods - vases and trays for jewelry, keys, small sundries - it may not be food safe. The items that are not food safe will be marked as such.




How do I care for the ceramics?


The porcelain pieces are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. You should clean with dishwashing detergent for items used with food and you can use the same or a glass cleaner for the non-food items.




What is the origami made of?


The origami is folded into shapes out of various types of papers - handmade, commercial, printed, textured, embossed, transparent, and more.




How do I care for the origami pieces?


Since origami is paper, it is fragile therefore subject to the same environmental stressors as other types of paper and will eventually degrade. Keep your pieces out of the sun so they do not fade, dust lightly with a feather duster or soft cloth to keep clean, do not get the origami pieces wet, do not crush them. They will easily be destroyed without attentive care.




What types of custom orders do you offer?


For the porcelain - I can do custom color requests in some of the shapes on the site, but the glazing and firing process is mercurial and your piece will be in the tonality of what you want but not necessarily exactly the same. This is not commercial production at a large factory but one-of-a-kind at a small facility in New York City. A conversation is always best. For the origami - I can do custom paper requests and shapes. It is much easier to have a conversation about what you are looking to do so we are on the same page :)




Where are your pieces created and shipped from?


All origami and porcelain pieces are created in and shipped from New York State.
