The color is "Camel." We finished it with a glossy, translucent shade resembling caramel or mustard. By combining camel with tabby patterns, we were able to express the cute "Tabby Cat"♪ With a slight lip, it can catch sauce-like liquids.

Care instructions

Before you start using pottery, it's important to know a few things to keep it in good condition.

Pottery absorbs water. This means if you start using it right away, liquids like oil, soy sauce, or tea can soak into it. Even washing won't completely get rid of these stains, especially in colored pottery where the dirt isn't as visible but can still cause smells and mold.

To prevent this, soak your pottery in clean water for about 30 minutes to an hour before using it for the first time. Then make sure to dry it thoroughly for 2 to 3 days before using it again. Even if you're using a bowl that hasn't been used in a while, it's a good idea to give it a quick rinse before serving food in it.

While in the past, boiling pottery in rice soup was suggested to prevent stains, it's time-consuming. Soaking pottery in water for 30 minutes to an hour is a simpler alternative that works well.

Remember, pottery absorbs water, so stains may gradually build up with use. However, this is considered part of its charm, as pottery changes over time with use.

When it comes to using dishwashers, ovens, and microwaves, be cautious. These machines can stress pottery, possibly leading to dirt buildup, chipping, or cracking. Scratched or cracked pottery may even break in dishwashers, so it's best to avoid using damaged pottery altogether.

Pottery is sensitive to sudden temperature changes, so avoid placing hot pottery in cold water or exposing it to extreme temperatures.

While dishwashers won't break pottery with their high temperatures and pressures, be careful not to bump or drop your pottery inside. Metal dishwasher baskets can also cause damage if bumped. It's best to hand wash pottery to avoid this risk.

Using a microwave or steamer is generally safe for pottery, but avoid sudden cooling of hot pottery to prevent damage. Also, refrain from using scratched or cracked pottery in microwaves or steamers to prevent breakage.

Avoid using bleach on pottery, as it can be absorbed and cause harm.

Lastly, pottery from this kiln isn't fireproof, so it can't be used directly on an open flame.
