Caring for Your Pottery

Thank you for choosing a piece from Art by BKD's collection. Each item is crafted with care and designed to be a cherished part of your home for years to come.


To ensure the longevity and beauty of your pottery, please follow these care instructions:

General Care

Always handle your pottery with clean, dry hands. Support the base when lifting to avoid stress on the handles or rims.


Use a soft, damp cloth to clean your pottery. For more thorough cleaning, you can hand wash with mild soap and warm water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they can scratch the surface.


After washing, dry your pottery thoroughly with a soft towel. Avoid air drying, as prolonged exposure to moisture can weaken the material over time.


Special Considerations

Dishwasher Use
While some of our pottery pieces may be dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing to preserve the finish and prevent any potential damage from harsh detergents and high temperatures.


Microwave Use
Avoid placing pottery with metallic glazes or decorative elements in the microwave. Always check the specific care instructions provided with each piece.


Outdoor Use
If displaying pottery outdoors, be mindful of weather conditions. Bring pieces indoors during extreme cold or heat to prevent cracking or fading.


Repair and Maintenance

Cracks and Chips 
If your pottery becomes chipped or cracked, it's best to consult a professional for repair to maintain its integrity and appearance.


Glaze Maintenance
Over time, the glaze on your pottery may develop a patina, enhancing its character. If you notice any changes that concern you, please contact us for advice on appropriate care or restoration.


Long-Term Care

When not in use, store your pottery in a dry, stable environment. Use padded storage containers or wrap pieces in soft cloth to prevent scratches and breakage.


Use display stands or plate hangers designed for pottery to safely showcase your pieces without putting stress on the edges or surfaces.

By following these care guidelines, you can ensure that your Art by BKD pottery remains beautiful and functional for many years. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us at [Contact Information].


Thank you for appreciating and taking care of our art. Enjoy your beautiful pottery!
